Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel - Jamie Ford I think I might instead read When the Emperor Was Diviine and /or Color of the Sea.

I chose to read When the Emperor Was Divine.

This I can highly recommend.

I just cannot get convince myself that I will enjoy "Hotel on the Corner of Better and Sweet". I think I will find it too simple, too cute, too sweet. But should I try it......
