These Foolish Things

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

"She writes beautifully, as always, and the phrase-making is as good as the characterisation...brilliant" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A delightful novel" (Scotsman)

"These Foolish Things, a kind of less savage version of Kingsley Amis's unbearably funny novel Ending Up. Moggach's prose is markedly more graceful than Agatha Christie's, her moral world is not dissimilar" (The Times)

"It is characterisation at which Moggach excels. Her gift is to perceive and describe our confusions about life-and to write with feeling about the continual quest for love and happiness that is part of the human condition" (Sunday Times)

"Moggach has served us a treat with this novel. Moving, sincere, funny, terrifying in places, it is a truthful view of old age and what it brings" (Independent on Sunday)

From the Publisher:

These Foolish Things is classic Moggach: funny, touching and so full of colours and visual details that you feel, after finishing it, as if you've already seen the movie.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Enticed by advertisements for a newly restored palatial hotel and filled with visions of a life of leisure, good weather and mango juice in their gin, a group of very different people leave England to begin a new life in India. On arrival they are dismayed to find the palace is a shell of its former self, the staff more than a little eccentric, and the days of the Raj long gone. But, as they soon discover, life and love can begin again, even in the most unexpected circumstances. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099461845
