Famous Last Words
Famous Last Words | Timothy Findley
5 posts | 3 read | 1 reading
In the final days of the Second World War, Hugh Selwyn Mauberley scrawls his desperate account on the walls and ceilings of his ice-cold prison high in the Austrian Alps. Officers of the liberating army discover his frozen, disfigured corpse and his astonishing testament -- the sordid truth that he alone possessed. Fascinated but horrified, they learn of a dazzling array of characters caught up in scandal and political corruption. The exiled Duke and Duchess of Windsor, von Ribbentrop, Hitler, Charles Lindbergh, Sir Harry Oakes -- all play sinister parts in an elaborate scheme to secure world domination.

I FINALLY got to check out this place, Famous Last Words in Toronto. It‘s a bar that looks like my dream library (except I‘m sorry, I could not ever sort my books by colour). Reading their menu is a riot. They play music on a record player. My cocktail was the Princess Bride, and I got to sit and read and not be disturbed. Excellent!

britt_brooke Looks amazing - enjoy! Although pretty, I couldn‘t sort my books by color either. 2y
Jess7 Wow!!! So cool! 2y
Crystalblu So, what exactly is in a Princess Bride? 2y
Tanner @britt_brooke @Jess7 I‘d definitely go back again next time I‘m in that area. 2y
Tanner @Crystalblu I‘m ashamed to say I don‘t remember. But it tasted sweet and refreshing at the same time. I could easily have had another, but it was pretty potent (for me, anyway). 2y
