The fascinating background details of the running of a luxury hotel in the 1920s, modeled on the Savoy Hotel in London. The central character, Evelyn Orcham, is the Director of the hotel, and, following a merger, the director of a chain of luxury hotels. With one important exception, all the other characters are either hotel staff, or people with a financial interest in the business. Throughout the book, the daily details of running the business mesh with the lives, loves and relationships of the characters. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Bennett, Arnold

Author Image

Enoch Arnold Bennett (always known as Arnold Bennett) was one of the most remarkable literary figures of his time, a product of the English Potteries that he made famous as the Five Towns. Yet he could hardly wait to escape his home town, and he did so by the sheer force of his ambition to succeed as an author. In his time he turned his hand to every kind of writing, but he will be remembered for such novels as The Old Wives' Tale, the Clayhanger trilogy (Clayhanger, Hilda Lessways, and These Twain), and The Card. He also wrote such intriguing self-improvement books as Literary Taste, How To Live on 24 Hours a Day, The Human Machine, etc. A number of biographies have appeared over the years, and I suggest that Margaret Drabble's is probably the best.
