" EMR manages, once again, to deliver a superb, claustrophobic account of the subject. In this case, the year before the outbreak of WW2. An in-depth study of life in Paris at the time, focussing on the diversity of emigrants of the time and the diverse outcome in their lives. Coming from different backgrounds and going to different futures, they are all linked by the present situation. The main character is complete, deep and powerful. With a good dosage of black humour, I particularly enjoyed the stories immigrants of the hotel. "
