HOTEL BEMELMANS by Ludwig Bemelmans


Email this review


Though this volume includes the whole of Hotel Splendide and Life Class in so far as those stories dealt with hotel life and personnel, and a number of stories from other volumes, and some which many of us read in The New Yorker, and only three wholly new ones, the general impression is of a new book, with freshness and vitality, the wit, humor, pathos, and the inimitable Bemelmans' touch. There's a sequence, a sense of unfolding adventure, an autobiographical quality that makes it particularly his. So here's a feast for Bemelmans' fans- who particularly like his stories of the personnel- the behind-scenes of a grand hotel.
