“ An ice-cold Martini is like the first sip of water for a desert strandee — nectar from the Gods; a warm one is a human rights violation and tastes more like Bear Grylls' regular drink of choice ...more ”
“ Sophara scrawled orders on a slate and handed it to one of the libationarians, whose encyclopedic knowledge of the contents and locations of all the bottles kept the bar running. ”

[close] I'd like some advice on a good summer read but I'm quite specific. I'm from Corsica and live in North London for 5 years. I'm going back to Corsica for a month or two and would like to read books following those three categories. 1 - Something quite like Fitzgerald's Tender is the night - Pre-WW2 foreigners spending time in elegant and luxurious surroundings by the sea. 1 - Something quite like Brideshead Revisited. I'm too hot in Corsica and misses the UK. Books set during summer spent in Victorian houses, in parks and ponds more than by the sea, in which everyone dresses in white and enjoys drinking before dinner. 3 - Something quite like Rum Diary. A much warmer summer with heavy drinking. The characters are so hot they drink to forget and go swimming. You can feel inspired to do the same.
