"1919: After surviving the Great War, Major Brendan Archer makes his way to Ireland, hoping to discover whether he is indeed betrothed to Angela Spencer, whose Anglo-Irish family owns the once-aptly-named Majestic Hotel in Kilnalough. But his fiance;e is strangely altered and her family's fortunes have suffered a spectacular decline. The hotel's hundreds of rooms are disintegrating on a grand scale; its few remaining guests thrive on rumors and games of whist; herds of cats have taken over the Imperial Bar and the upper stories; bamboo shoots threaten the foundations; and piglets frolic in the squash court. Meanwhile, the Major is captivated by the beautiful and bitter Sarah Devlin. As housekeeping disasters force him from room to room, outside the order of the British Empire also totters: there is unrest in the East, and in Ireland itself the mounting violence of 'the troubles.' Troubles is a hilarious and heartbreaking work by a modern master of the historical novel"--Publisher description

Inspired by historical events, "The Siege of Krishnapur "is the mesmerizing tale of a British outpost, under siege during the Indian Mutiny of 1857, whose residents find their smug assumptions of moral and military superiority and their rigid class barriers under fire--literally and figuratively. The hero of "Troubles, "having survived the battles of World War I, makes his way to Ireland in 1919, in search of his once-wealthy fiancee. What he finds is her family's enormous seaside hotel in a spectacular state of decline, overgrown and overrun by herds of cats and pigs and the few remaining guests. From this strange perch, moving from room to room as the hotel falls down around him, he witnesses the distant tottering of the Empire in the East and the rise of the violent "Troubles" in Ireland

J.G. Farrell : the making of a writer by Lavinia Greacen( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1979, in a remote corner of West Cork in Ireland, J.G. Farrell was drowned while fishing from the rocks near his home. He was forty-four, and it had been only six years since he had won the Booker Prize for his novel The Siege of Krishnapur. A man who elevated privacy to a high art, Farrell's legacy would be the Empire Trilogy, including the much-loved Troubles, now hailed as a classic of the twentieth century; as well as a lingering air of mystery. Farrell had always been an inscrutable man." "Based on her access to J.G. Farrell's family and friends, as well as his notebooks and personal correspondence, Lavinia Greacen's biography disentangles not only the full circumstances of the novelist's death, but the story of his life and how it informed everything he wrote."--Jacket

J.G. Farrell in his own words : selected letters and diaries by J. G Farrell( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many of these selected letters are written to women whom Jim Farrell loved and whom he inadvertently hurt. His ambition to be a great writer in an age of minimal author's earnings ruled out the expense of marriage and fatherhood, so self-sufficiency was his answer. Books Ireland has portrayed him as 'a mystery wrapped in an enigma, a man who wanted solitude and yet did not want it, wanted love but feared commitment, reached out again and again but, possibly through fear of rejection, was always the first to cut the cord.' But Farrell's kindness, deft humour and gift for friendship reached across rejection, which must account for why so many such letters were kept." "Funny, teasing, anxious and ambitious, these previously unpublished letters to a wide range of friends give the reader a glimpse of this private man. Ranging from childhood to the day before his death, Farrell's distinctive letters have the impact of autobiography."--Jacket
