Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Leslie Hogue, June 3, 2009

Jamie Ford's beautiful first novel about the life of two teenagers in Seattle, Wa. Henry & Kieko meet just before the start of WWII at an all white school in Seattle. It is a wonderful view into the lives of different ethnic groups in Seattle in the 1940's then into the 1980's. It shows how the personal relationships evolve as different aspects infuence their lives.
