Matthias Brandt/Alexander Gorkow

Lesung aus „Hotel Laguna”

Mousonturm Saal


For an eventful eternity, he had not been back to the small cove of Canyamel on Majorca, where he spent many a memorable childhood summer since the late 1960’s. However, suddenly the widely travelled and prize-winning journalist asked himself: what has become of Canyamel? A research expedition with full board and lodgings runs its course, a comedy in an old and simultaneously utterly new world. The Hotel Laguna is just a charming, old family hotel, but for Alexander Gorkow, it is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. His home away from home. This passionate, clever and very amusing book is both a family saga and a cultural history of German mentality – our holidays, our country and our longings.
