Hotel rooms: a book for travellers

A man travels from one city to the next, right across Germany and Europe as far as China and into Iran, but he has eyes for only one thing; hotel rooms.
He can't get enough of them, looks with unflagging curiosity and wonder at everything that he finds there: strawberries in a bowl. Is there a pencil by the telephone – suggesting, in his experience, a better hotel – or a ball-point pen? David Wagner, a master of the poetic observation of everyday life and repeatedly extolled for his descriptive artistry and extreme elegance of style, takes us with him into more than a hundred hotel rooms, as everyone knows them and no-one has yet seen them. A book for anyone and everyone who travels or who offers accommodation to others.
