The Hill Station

J.G. Farrell

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

NST - Airfreighted to order - FIRM SALE.

To the cool of the Simla hills comes a reluctant Dr McNab, with his wife and young niece. For Emily, romance is in the air. For the mysterious Mrs Forester, there is scandal brewing. And for the Bishop of Simla, rainclouds are not the only storms on the horizon...

THE HILL STATION is the novel on which J.G Farrell was working at the time of his tragically early accidental death. It demonstrates powerfully what a great loss to world literature this was.
