Abstract:

The central figure of the book is the Imperial Palace, a super-luxury hotel, "the kind of hotel whose directors are gods, whose managers are archangels, whose myriad head-waiters and staff are the choir of cherubim and seraphim." This vast and splendidly organized hotel is the creation of that artist among hotel-managers, Evelyn Orcham, and like every one else on its staff he is enslaved to it. Just for a moment he is deflected by the heady charms of Gracie Savott, who deliberately tempts him, but he returns to the more soberly satisfying Violet Powler, head housekeeper of the Imperial Palace, whose allegiance to the hotel is as strong as his own.
