This carefully crafted ebook: "Gay Life (Unabridged)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Set in the Côte d'Azur, Hilary and Angie Moon have to live on their wits and her beauty. This novel is a light satirical take on the residents and guests of a Hotel on the French Riviera who have their own strength and flaws and must come to terms with their lives, age and romance over the course of a typical summer. E. M. Delafield (1890-1943) was a prolific English author who is best known for her largely autobiographical works like Zella Sees Herself, Provincial Lady Series etc. which look at the lives of upper-middle class Englishwomen. Excerpt: "Maman, j'ai raté l'autobus!" The shimmering heat-haze of the afternoon seemed to quiver as the shrill, lamentable announcement of this disaster broke into the silence that lay over the deserted terrace of the Hotel." (The Gay Life)
