Item description for Delightfully Imperfect: A year In Sri Lanka at the Galle Face Hotel by Harris Paul...
After thirteen visits to Sri Lanka, Paul Harris, an award winning international journalist and author of more than forty books, decided to settle on the Indian Ocean island he had come to love. Working for the London Daily Telegraph and Janes Intelligence Review, he would be there for a year, staying at the renowned Galle Face Hotel, the oldest hotel in the world east of Suez, before being expelled by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on an ultimatum from the rebel Tamil Tigers. This is the story of a remarkable year at the Galle Face Hotel. It not only paints a fascinating inside picture of a legendary hotel, but it also provides a unique perspective on politics and conflict in a troubled tropical island.
