Ein schillerndes Epos über die Welt am Rande einer Zeitenwende. 1839: Nachdem China den vornehmlich von den Briten und deren Kolonien betriebenen Handel mit Opium nicht mehr dulden will, erklärt ihm Großbritannien den Krieg. Die Hind ist eines der Schiffe, die bei einem Angriff zum Einsatz kommen sollen, und segelt zu diesem Zweck von Bombay nach China. An Bord ist unter anderem Kesri Singh, ein Kommandant der britisch-ostindischen Armee, der eine Kompanie Soldaten befehligt; außerdem Zachary Reid, ein verarmter junger Seemann, der auf der Suche nach seiner verlorenen Liebe ist, und Shirin Moddie, die in China die Hinterlassenschaft ihres verstorbenen Mannes, eines Opiumhändlers, an sich nehmen will. Sie alle geraten schon bald in die Wirren der Opiumkriege, die in Chinas verheerender Niederlage und in der Annektierung Hongkongs durch Großbritannien enden werden. Eine vor Atmosphäre und Detailfreude flirrende, spannende und berührende Geschichte vor der Kulisse Indiens und Chinas, mit der Amitav Ghosh sein großes historisches Panorama über die Opiumkriege, die eine frühe Ära der Globalisierung markieren, fulminant vollendet.

From the award-winning novelist and writer of Upstairs Downstairs, the launch of a brilliant new trilogy about what life was really like for masters and servants before the world of Downton Abbey As the Season of 1899 comes to an end, the world is poised on the brink of profound, irrevocable change. The Earl of Dilberne is facing serious financial concerns. The ripple effects spread to everyone in the household: Lord Robert, who has gambled unwisely on the stock market and seeks a place in the Cabinet; his unmarried children, Arthur, who keeps a courtesan, and Rosina, who keeps a parrot in her bedroom; Lord Robert's wife Isobel, who orders the affairs of the household in Belgrave Square; and Grace, the lady's maid who orders the life of her mistress. Lord Robert can see no financial relief to an already mortgaged estate, and, though the Season is over, his thoughts turn to securing a suitable wife (and dowry) for his son. The arrival on the London scene of Minnie, a beautiful Chicago heiress with a reputation to mend, seems the answer to all their prayers. As the writer of the pilot episode of the original Upstairs, Downstairs—Fay Weldon brings a deserved reputation for magnificent storytelling. With wit and sympathy—and no small measure of mischief—Habits of the House plots the interplay of restraint and desire, manners and morals, reason and instinct.
