The Grand Babylon Hotel, Paperback / softback Book

The Grand Babylon Hotel Paperback / softback

Edited by Randi Saloman

Part of the Broadview Editions series

Description

The Grand Babylon Hotel opens with New York millionaire Theodore Racksole's demand for an ""Angel Kiss"" - an American concoction the Grand Babylon does not serve.

Racksole and his daughter Nella are on vacation, but quickly find themselves running the hotel, after Theodore's impulsive purchase of the establishment from founder and owner Felix Babylon.

Soon the Racksoles are rushing to solve the mystery that threatens the reigning Prince of Posen - and Nella's future.

The hotel itself opens possibilities for adventure, discovery, and wonder that the Racksoles had never anticipated. The novel, out of print for decades, raises serious questions about the possibilities for a truly cosmopolitan world, offering a dazzling picture of what this would look like.

The historical appendices to this edition include extensive photographs and documents from the history of the Savoy Hotel (the model for the Grand Babylon) and material on the film version.
