Hotel Living’s heartbreak, decline and rebellion pull-MANINTOWN

“Peter Jeffreys, the Cavafy scholar, read HOTEL LIVING and explained the narrative’s tension between vulnerability and strength. I was having a beer at the Gym Bar on 8th Ave when his email came in. He had written a mini thesis. I kept scrolling and scrolling on my phone, my friend was, watch it, you’ll get carpal tunnel syndrome… Jeffreys got obsessed with the protagonist. He pinpointed page by page his heartbreak, decline and rebellion pull. I went back and reread the pieces. He saw some Don Draper in Stathis.” By Verdiana Garau
