Hotel Savoy (Works of Joseph Roth)
Synopses & Reviews
Still bearing scars from the gulag, a freed POW traverses Russia to arrive at the Polish town of Lodz. In its massive Hotel Savoy, he meets a surreal cast of characters, each eagerly awaiting the return from America of a rich man named Bloomfield. Like Europe itself in 1932, the hotel is the stage upon which characters follow fate to its tragic destination.
A freed POW who still bears scars from the gulag flees to the Polish town of Lodz; in its hotel, he meets a surreal cast of characters whose groundlessness mirrors that of Europe in 1932.
