The Feast by Margaret Kennedy


Review by Valerie:

“This unique novel set in a Cornish hotel in 1947, published in 1950,  is a classic deservedly republished. It succeeds on so many levels it’s very hard to classify.  An allegory on life in post war England, a morality tale played out through the behaviour of the  guests and the dysfunctional owners’ family  running the hotel, but most importantly it’s funny, clever, thought provoking  and a great read for this summer.”

Cornwall, Midsummer 1947. Pendizack Manor Hotel is buried in the rubble of a collapsed cliff. Seven guests have perished, but what brought this strange assembly together for a moonlit feast before this Act of God – or Man? Over the week before the landslide, we meet the hotel guests in all their eccentric glory: and as friendships form and romances blossom, sins are revealed, and the cracks widen … A wise, witty fable, The Feast is a banquet indeed.
