Hotel Chelsea

Written by

It is March 2011 and the financial crisis has stretched across the earth. It controls everything and imposes its own rules. But on West 23rd Street, in Manhattan, New York, in one of the most charming hotels in the world, at the Hotel Chelsea, as if in some other place, some other time, someone is trying to keep a promise that he made ten years before: a promise of eternal love.

But how can he succeed in a world that controls and knows everything? Which dark recesses of his soul will he have to probe in order to bring back what he has lost? A love story, an ode to love and to New York, a fantasy, a fairy tale, a modern novel of loss. A brilliant example of contemporary Greek literature.
