Summary
A compelling portrait of the perfect English butler, who, at the end of his career in postwar England, reviews his life and secretly questions the "greatness" of the nobleman he served. This Booker Prize-winning novel is now a Merchant-Ivory film starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson
Summary
Stevens, an aging butler dedicated to the dignity of his profession, takes to the road to convince Ms. Bent -- a now-married former housekeeper -- to resume her duties at Darlington Hall. As Stevens journeys, he reflects on their prior acquaintance; his memories reveal Stevens’ deeply personal desires, and how he has rewritten events to maintain his ideal image of service and discretion. -- Description by Kimberly S. Burton
