“...his great European novel is a page-turner ” - De Tijd

Our June pick is an addictive masterpiece on European identity, nostalgia and the end of an era. Finally translated into English, released in April 2022. Save the date and join the book club!

"You should put Grand Hotel Europa by Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer on the shelf next to Europe books by Thomas Mann and Harry Mulisch. Rarely have we read a novel that ingeniously links a tragic but beautiful love story with serious, but never dull, often witty reflections on the phenomenon that is Europe. […] Grand Hotel Europa is a love letter to an old beloved, a dead-tired but stunning continent." - De Limburger

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer is an acclaimed Dutch poet and novelist, as well as polemicist and classical scholar. He moved permanently to Genoa, Italy, in 2008.
