Grand Hotel by Vicki Baum (1929) translated from the German by Basil Creighton (1931) with revisions by Margot Bettauer Dembo (2016) NYRB Classics (2016) 270 pp. My knowledge of Grand Hotel came solely from Billy Wilder’s 1960 film The Apartment. Near the beginning of that film, Jack Lemmon’s protagonist . Baxter goes home alone after work and sits down to unwind with dinner and a movie.
A grand hotel in the center of 1920s Berlin serves as a microcosm of the modern world in Vicki Baum's celebrated novel, a Weimar-era bestseller that retains all its verve and luster today. Among the guests of the hotel is Dr. Otternschlag, a World War I veteran whose face has been sliced in half by a shell. Day after day he emerges to read the paper in the lobby, discreetly inquiring at the desk if the letter he's been awaiting for years has arrived
Wednesday, June 15, 2016. Grand Hotel by Vicki Baum (1929). Grand Hotel is a book I think anyone into Weimier Germany will enjoy.
Wednesday, June 15, 2016. Starring Greta Garbo, made in 1932 and now frequently shown on The Turner Classic Movie Channel, I have seen it enough times so I can pull up large segments of it in my mind. My guess is most potential bookreaders will have already the movie and will be delighted to see how closely the movie follows the book. Vicki Baum (1888–1960) was born into an affluent Jewish family in Vienna.
