THE HOTEL IN THE JUNGLE by Albert J. Guerard
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: June 1, 1996

"At times bewildering and overly dense—like the jungle it evokes—and, in the end, much like the Grand Hotel Balneario itself: haunted, mysterious, beguiling."
The beautifully evoked jungles of southern Mexico are the setting for distinguished critic Guerard's eighth novel (Christine/Annette, 1985, etc.), a story that layers diaries and narratives from three separate time periods—1870, 1922, and the present—to tell of a fabulous Mayan ruin, Casas Grandes, and its nearby dopplegÑnger, a folly in the jungle called the Gran Hotel Balneario Chimalapa.
