Pero el número de niños crece y, a pesar de las ayudas que recibe de Alemania, la situación es cada vez más complicada. Katrin decide entonces construir un orfanato. A pesar de los muchos sinsabores, de las decepciones, de los conflictos con la Administración, Mama Tenga no se rinde y sigue adelante, animad por las numerosas muestras de apoyo y solidadaridad
Hotel Honolulu by Paul Theroux( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"Welcome to the Hotel Honolulu, a down-at-the-heels tourist place on a back street two blocks from the beach at Waikiki, where middle America stays and dreams." "Like the Canterbury pilgrims, every guest in this eighty-room hotel has come in search of something - sun, love, happiness, un-namable longing - and everyone has a story. Honeymooners, vacationers, wanderers, mythomaniacs, soldiers, and families all land at the Hotel Honolulu. But the hotel is as suited to being a crime scene as a love nest. Fortunately, our keen-eyed narrator, a writer down on his luck, is there to relate all the comings and goings. He's lost money, friends, house, and family, and he has no experience running a hotel. But all that doesn't stop Buddy, the boozy owner of the place - the last of a dying breed - from signing him on as manager. It isn't long before the hotel expands to encompass the narrator's whole universe. His original plan of escape from a life of the mind becomes something altogether different: a way to return to the world he left, the world of imagined life."--Jacket
