A tale of Empire

Old Filth by Jane Gardam is a great novel which follows the decline of the British Empire through life story of Old Filth. FILTH, in his heyday, was an international lawyer with a practice in the Far East. Now, only the oldest QCs and Silks can remember that his nickname stood for Failed In London Try Hong Kong. Long ago, Old Filth was a Raj orphan - one of the many young children sent 'Home' from the East to be fostered and educated in England. Available in the shop for €11.70
