it was amazing
Read in November, 1988

Perhaps the best book I've ever read. Hilarious, bleak, surreal and so very real, this absurd look at the crumbling British empire through the eyes of a shell-shocked upper class twit at a once glorious hotel (the Majestic" in Ireland on the eve of the "Troubles" was impossible to put down. Anyone who loves literature will love this book.
