James Gordon Farrell
1935 - 1979


Troubles
The last days of the British occupation of Ireland are viewed by a British Major from a decaying hotel in Kilnalough. This was the first part of his Empire Trilogy.

Amazon

The Siege of Krishnapur
The remarkable second book of the Empire trilogy. This book deals with the British attitudes that led to the Mutiny through the prism of the Europeans holed up in their remote imperial outpost. The veneer of civilisation is surprisingly thin!

Amazon

The Singapore Grip
The third part of the Empire trilogy sees a Singapore trader abuse his commercial war time advantages before he realises that his and The British Empires are both about to come crashing down around his ears. Commerical, personal and military arrogance all combine at an inopportune time.

Amazon

The Hill Station
This book was actually unfinished at the time of J G Farrell's untimely death. It recounts goings on at the Hill Station of Simla. Romance, scandal and trouble loom on the horizon.
