Probably Bemelmans' best work and certainly his most famous essays, Hotel Bemelmans brilliantly evokes the kitchens, back passages, dining rooms, and banquet halls of Bemelmans' years at the Hotel Splendide a thinly disguised stand-in for the Ritz. It's a strange, fabulous, and sometimes terrible universe populated by rogues, con-men, geniuses, craftsmen, lunatics, gypsies, tramps, and thieves and it's all here in bitingly funny detail. Accompanied by 73 of Bemelmans' original, charming drawings.
