Grand Hotel (New York Review Books Classics) - Vicki Baum, Noah Isenberg, Margot Bettauer Dembo, Basil Creighton

June 2016 NYRB Book Club Selection.


Baum's book is a slow start. It took me awhile to get into it. But then when you get to the ballerina and the thief, it is so beautiful. What is amazing, in some aspects, is how little things have changed.
