Hilton, James: Lost Horizon, IMP,v.1, 29 Oct 2007.
A bestseller of 1933.
After an air crash, group of westerners find themselves marooned in the Himalayan valley of Shangri-La. There is a monastery where the peace-loving lamas do not seem to age and are intent on preserving the best of world civilisation. The visitors are invited to remain.
This utopian work was a very popular escapist novel in the thirties; and with the economic depression, the memories of the Great War, and the prospect of another war, they had good reason to like escapist literature.
