Tecia Werbowski

Hotel Polski

Eva is married and has a harmonious relationship with her husband. They are fond of each other. Her children are healthy and normal. She is working at the university library and enjoys her work. A life perhaps too monotonous and too predictable?

Tecia Werbowski gives the historical ›Hotel Polski Affair‹ a truthful and impressive timeliness.


»Written with a brilliantly succint pen. A successful literary attempt to forget stereotypes.«
