Lost Horizon by by James Hilton (1933)

Fascinating little novel by British writer James Hilton about an isolated community in the Himalayan mountains where people live for centuries and peace abounds. It was the basis for the Frank Capra movie in 1937 and the wonderfully bad musical film in 1973. The book is very polished and has all the marks of being written by a writer of great skill. I won't go into much about it because so much has already been written. I do recommended it.
