Vicki Baum

Grand Hotel

€ 15.95


`A grand hotel in the center of 1920s Berlin serves as a microcosm of the modern world in Vicki Baum`s celebrated novel, a Weimar-era bestseller that retains all its verve and luster today. Among the guests of the hotel is Dr. Otternschlag, a World War Iveteran whose face has been sliced in half by a shell. Day after day he emerges to read the paper in the lobby, discreetly inquiring at the desk if the letter he`s been awaiting for years has arrived. Then there is Grusinskaya, a great ballerina now fighting a losing battle not so much against age as against her fear of it, and Gaigern, a sleek professional thief, who may or may not be made for each other. Herr Preysing also checks in, the director of a family firm that isn`t as flourishing as it appears, who would never imagine that Kringelein, his underling, a timorous petty clerk he`s bullied for years, has also come to Berlin, determined to live at last now that he`s received a medical death sentence. All these characters and more, with their secret fears and hopes, come together and come alive in the pages of Baum`s delicious and disturbing masterpiece`-
