Hotel of the Saints
A young man waits in a hospital room with his father, who has received the heart of a twenty-seven year old woman; a musician tries to protect her daughter from loving a blind man; a woman transcends her embarrassment for her first love, who has tripled in size. These and other luminous tales unfold in Germany and Mexico, Italy and America as lovers and loners, eccentrics and artists, children and parents search for that unique place where faith thrives for each of them, discovering that foreign territory can be a continent away or in the same neighbourhood -- even the same bed.
In lyrical, vibrant prose, Hegi manifests her bold range of vision as she celebrates the diversity of her characters and balances us on that magical border where laughter and sorrow become one. This new collection from the acclaimed author of Stones From the River confirms her reputation as an extraordinary storyteller.
