Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

A little bit of fun on a Friday, this weekly meme is hosted by A Few More Pages.

The Panama Hotel (1986)

Old Henry Lee stood transfixed by all the commotion at the Panama Hotel. What had started as a crowd of curious onlookers eyeballing a television news crew had now swollen into a polite mob of shoppers, tourists, and a few punk-looking street kids, all wondering what the big deal was. In the middle of the crowd stood Henry, shopping bags hanging at his side. He felt as if he were waking from a long forgotten dream. A dream he’d once had as a little boy.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford is my next read for the Historical Tapestry Challenge.
