The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

UK & Comm Chatto & Windus
Feb 2012

Enticed by advertisements for a luxury retirement home in India, a group of strangers leave England to begin a new life. 

On arrival, however, they discover the palace is a shell of its former self, the staff are more than a little eccentric and the days of the Raj appear to be long gone.

But, as they soon discover, life and love can begin again, even in the most unexpected circumstances. 

Previously published with the title These Foolish Things.
