Description - The House In Paris by Elizabeth Bowen

To the stuffy, French bourgeois house, with the evil old woman in her sickroom upstairs, come two children who have never met before to spend a few hours in the care of Mme Fisher's daughter before going on their separate ways. Henrietta, conventionally English but not unfeeling, is on her way to stay with relations at Mentone; Leopold, with his disconcerting manner and precocious slyness, is there be-cause events in the lives of other grown-up characters are moving to-wards some sort of tragic climax. It is as if the whole of the past has led up to this gloomy afternoon, which also holds within it the seeds of a no less tragic future.

Her first book, a collection of shorts stories, Encounters, was published in 1923. The Hotel (1926) was her first novel. She was awarded the CBE in 1948, and received honorary degrees from Trinity College, Dublin in 1949, and from Oxford University in 1956.
