    Inhaltsangabe

    J. G. Farrell was born in England and moved to Ireland around the age of 12. Often mistaken for an Irish-born writer, this is mainly because Troubles, the first book of his Empire Trilogy (also including The Siege of Krishnapur and The Singapore Grip) takes a comical yet political and personal look at the realities of the Irish fight for independence against the might of the British Empire.

    A listener follows Brendan Archer, a major in the British Army, to County Wicklow in Ireland, where he is supposed to meet the woman he thinks he will marry. When his plans do not turn out quite as he imagined, he decides to stay on at The Majestic - a crumbling coastal hotel - which holds a strange charm and many eccentric, often amusing, inhabitants.

    Made into a film for television in 1988, Troubles is an involving and interesting listen, both touching and enthralling.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "It's humorously and, above all, intelligently read by the peerless Sean Barrett. I'm so grateful to have it... if you've never read Farrell, you're in for a rare treat." ( The Guardian)
