Summary
At the front of a little hotel in a country town, a flickering sign says, 'All Welcome'. There's a chandelier in the lobby, a polished wooden staircase, and a broken swing under a tree in the backyard. Fleeing a catastrophe they cannot describe, two strangers in ill-fitting clothes stagger into town, where they are offered a room by the hotelier - and a wary hospitality. No one knows where they've come from or who they are, including the young man assigned to watch them and make note of everything they do. A profound and unsettling fable about trust and fear, cruelty and compassion, dignity and hope - and about what it means to bear witness
Summary
"Two mysterious strangers turn up at a hotel in a small country town. Where have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe are they fleeing? The townspeople want answers, but the strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. Before long, wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of the men slides into appalling cruelty."--Publisher information
