The Midland Hotel is one of the great architectural statements, both nationally and internationally, about the nature of Modernism and modernity. Architect Oliver Hill commissioned modernist-chic artists and designers - Eric Gill, Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden and Duncan Grant - to create a work of art' hotel. For years this art-deco building lay derelict, until developers decided to re-open it. This book is a unique collection of photographs and texts documenting the transformation of this much-loved building.'

**WINNER of the 2013 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award** **WINNER of the BBC National Short Story Prize** 'The excellence of the collection is fractal: the whole book is excellent, and every story is excellent, and every paragraph is excellent, and every sentence is excellent. And, unlike some literary fiction, it's effortless to read.' - The Independent on Sunday ‘Perhaps the finest of contemporary writers in this form.’ – The Reader To the woman watching they looked like grace itself, the heart and soul of which is freedom. It pleased her particularly that they were attached by invisible strings to colourful curves of rapidly moving air. How clean and clever that was! You throw up something like a handkerchief, you tether it and by its headlong wish to fly away, you are towed along... Like the kite-surfers in this opening scene, the characters in David Constantine’s fourth collection are often delicately caught in moments of defiance. Disregarding their age, their family, or the prevailing political winds, they show us a way of marking out a space for resistance and taking an honest delight in it. Witness Alphonse – having broken out of an old people’s home, changed his name, and fled the country – now pedalling down the length of the Rhône, despite knowing he has barely six months to live. Or the clergyman who chooses to spend Christmas Eve – and the last few hours in his job – in a frozen, derelict school, dancing a wild jig with a vagrant called Goat. Key to these characters’ defiance is the power of fiction, the act of holding real life at arm’s length and simply telling a story – be it of the future they might claim for themselves, or the imagined lives of others. Like them, Constantine’s bewitching, finely-wrought stories give us permission to escape, they allow us to side-step the inexorable traffic of our lives, and beseech us to take possession of the moment.

“Daughter of Laharna” provides a glimpse of family life in Laharna Hotel, Larne, which was Patricia’s home for 24 years, and also details its history from 1833 - becoming the largest tour hotel in Ireland. Her father George A. Beattie was Resident Manager of Laharna Hotel, Larne from 1935 and in the Second World War, as part of essential services, looked after troop feeding at Larne Harbour and later the American Officer’s Club in the former Midland Hotel, Belfast. These were formerly railway owned hotels. Laharna Hotel was the base for a 6 day tour of N Ireland and with some 200 tourist residents weekly, from April to October, shows the great extent of tourism in the Province before “The Troubles” began in 1968, lasting some 30 years. The hotel, destroyed by fire in 1999, was then demolished. This is a personal history of the Beattie family’s life in the hotel, how George, born in Belfast, became an hotelier, his lifelong hobby of music as a piano accompanist and church organist. It records many events such as the Titanic launch, WW2 events in NI, the tragic sinking of the Princess Victoria in 1953 and family life in Larne.
