Morgan McFinnabout this book: This book is a sequel to 'At the Bamboo Bar'. Many of the same engaging characters and more of the same scintillating dialogue. The main characters are reunited after five years for a week of revelry that begins in Calcutta, India and moves on to the Strand Hotel in Rangoon, Burma. Top shelf booze, fine dining and witty repartee are resplendent throughout the affair.
A wedding is held at the South Park Street Cemetery in Calcutta and a round of golf at the Royal Calcutta Golf Club...the oldest golf course outside of Great Britain.
The title is a double-entendre referring to both Genevieve Langdon and the Strand Hotel.
Genvieve's health becomes an issue and adds a poignant touch of pathos to the proceedings.
For the most part, the story is meant to be good fun and it is hoped that the readers will enjoy the experience. Rest assured that the author certainly did.
