Hilton, James: Lost Horizon, IMP,v.1, 29 Oct 2007.
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.
Of making many books there is no end [Ecclesiastes, 12.12]
