The banquet and ballroom facility is in the east wing. Where the action is, so to speak. The basement floor plan is on the boiler room wall. Just a minute It sat there looking lonesome. The pad disappeared back into Ullman's jacket pocket like the conclusion of a magician's trick.
Now you see it, Jacky-boy, now you don't. This guy is a real heavyweight.
They had resumed their original positions, Ullman behind the desk and Jack in front of it, interviewer and interviewee, supplicant and reluctant patron. Ullman folded his neat little hands on the desk blotter and looked directly at Jack, a small, balding man in a banker's suit and a quiet gray tie.
The flower in his lapel was balanced off by a small lapel pin on the other side. Albert Shockley is a powerful man with a large interest in the Overlook, which showed a profit this season for the first time in its history. Shockley also sits on the Board of Directors, but he is not a hotel man and he would be the first to admit this.
But he has made his wishes in this caretaking matter quite obvious. He wants you hired. I will do so.
But if I had been given a free hand in this matter, I would not have taken you on. Officious little prick, officious little prick, officious-- "I don't believe you care much for me, Mr. I don't care.
Certainly your feelings toward me play no part in my own belief that you are not right for the job. During the season that runs from May fifteenth to September thirtieth, the Overlook employs one hundred and ten people full-time; one for every room in the hotel, you might say.
I don't think many of them like me and I suspect that some of them think I'm a bit of a bastard. They would be correct in their judgment of my character.
I have to be a bit of a bastard to run this hotel in the manner it deserves. Ullman said: "The Overlook was built in the years to The closest town is Sidewinder, forty miles east of here over roads that are closed from sometime in late October or November until sometime in April.
A man named Robert Townley Watson built it, the grandfather of our present maintenance man. Vanderbilts have stayed here, and Rockefellers, and Astors, and Du Ponts. Four Presidents have stayed in the Presidential Suite. Wilson, Harding, Roosevelt, and Nixon. Ullman frowned but went on regardless. Watson, and he sold the hotel in It was sold again in , in , in It stood vacant until the end of World War II, when it was downloadd and completely renovated by Horace Derwent, millionaire inventor, pilot, film producer, and entrepreneur.
Everything he touched seemed to turn to gold He funneled over a million dollars into it before the first postwar guest ever stepped through its doors, turning a decrepit relic into a showplace. It was Derwent who added the roque court I saw you admiring when you arrived. Croquet is bastardized roque. According to legend, Derwent learned the game from his social secretary and fell completely in love with it.
Ours may be the finest roque court in America. A roque court, a topiary full of hedge animals out front, what next? A life-sized Uncle Wiggily game behind the equipment shed? He was getting very tired of Mr. Stuart Ullman, but he could see that Ullman wasn't done. Ullman was going to have his say, every last word of it. Their experience with the Overlook was equally bad. Just not hotel people. Shockley and a group of his associates bought the hotel and turned its management over to me. We have also run in the red for several years, but I'm happy to say that the trust of the present owners in me has never wavered.
Last year we broke even. And this year the Overlook's accounts were written in black ink for the first time in almost seven decades. He said: "I see no connection between the Overlook's admittedly colorful history and your feeling that I'm wrong for the post, Mr. It shortens the profit margin a great deal more than you might believe, Mr. The winters are fantastically cruel.
In order to cope with the problem, I've installed a full-time winter caretaker to run the boiler and to heat different parts of the hotel on a daily rotating basis.
To repair breakage as it occurs and to do repairs, so the elements can't get a foothold. Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.
