Hôtel Splendid (European Women Writers)

Hôtel Splendid (European Women Writers) - Marie Redonnet, Jordan Stump Wow. What an unrelenting disaster that constantly gets remade and disfigured. Redonnet's creation is set against a backdrop of water and swallowing sands. In addition to the sponge-like rotting of anything made of wood, everything else is corroding and falling into disrepair. Especially the humans. Even birds. Disease and discomfort permeate the novel as does the swamp's encroachment on anything thought to be stable. The constant bombardment of reality disrupts the head-in-the-clouds utopia wishing to prevail. This is a dream no one should want. And it never stops. Why does anyone read a book like this? And then, why not?
