The Armchair Traveler Club

HERBERT ERNEST BATES

Posted by mukikamu on March 3, 2007

It’s undeniable that I have a weakness for colonial novels. I can’t help it. I am always swept away. The classic volumes of the great trio, Greene, Maugham and Bates are on my most sacred shelves. The latter is an absolute favourite with his delicate stories. His books’ slow athmosphere bring the wind of the tropics into the room. The Burman novels (Purple Plain and The Jacaranda Tree) make the monsoon sweep through your home. Airmchair travel at its best.

Read The Darling Buds of May for a taste of some English countyside.
