The remains of the day
Part of the Penguin Readers (graded Readers) series
Contemporary / British English (Available June 2008) It is the summer of 1956, and the ageing butler of Darlington Hall takes a rare holiday.
But it is a journey that will also take him deep into his past.
The Remains of the Day is a remarkable story: a man's exploration of his own life, and his heart-breaking attempt to make sense of it.
