Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the moment he arrives at an elegant seaside hotel with his lover, Allan unsettles and obsesses the other guests. Elusive, equivocal, beautiful, he lives, gambles, swims and dances with a strange fierceness that they find intoxicating. Soon he even haunts their dreams.

One by one, each guest is fatally drawn to Allan. And, as the hazy August heat fades and summer comes to an end, they gravitate towards self-destruction.

Synopsis:

A surreal nouveau-Gothic tale of death in a 1920s seaside hotel.

Synopsis:

The guests of a 1920s seaside hotel become obsessed with the equivocal, unsettling Allan—and soon realize that he is Death personified, summering among them. Amid the wild and surreal Breton landscape, the group gathering around Allan gradually disintegrates, symbolizing the end of a generation and the approach of war.
