Before the Bombardment
Osbert Sitwell's first novel, written in 1926, was also his favorite. Set in an out-of-season seaside hotel, it studies social and psychological change when a world of obsolete values comes under the bombardment of a new and harsher era. "A nearly flawless piece of satirical writing."--Bystander
