Old Filth by Jane Gardam

Recommended Posts

I have just finished reading Old Filth by Jane Gardam. A really exccellent book that tells the story of Filth a lawyer in Hong Kong (Filth stands for Failed in London Try Hong Kong). The story unravelled brilliantly, Filth born a Raj orphan, sent home to be educated, his experiences through the second world war and through to old age. I read it in 4 days it was that good!

I read Old filth earlier this summer. It was a nice easy book to read, and if I remember correctly it was a quite funny in places and pretty sad in others.

Maybe it was from you I heard about this Renniemist, but it certainly has piqued my curiosity. I'll have to look into this! Thanks for bring it up Snowflake. :smile2:
