A novel of searing eroticism and sensuality set against the broad sweep of twentieth-century history, the Booker Prize shortlisted THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic.
Aged twenty-nine, Frau Lisa Erdman enters treatment with Sigmund Freud. As Freud reviews her psychic life, he uncovers a mosaic past of repressed memories and hidden desires that turn examination of Lisa's seemingly mundane life into a bizarre investigation of incest, rape, and homosexuality-the erotic dreamscape of taboo sexual desire.
It is a dream of electrifying eroticism and inexplicable violence, recounted by a young woman to her analyst. It is a horrifying yet restrained narrative of the Holocaust. It is a searing vision of the wounds of our century and an attempt to heal them. THE WHITE HOTEL is a classic of enduring emotional power.
