Hotel Du Jack And Other Stories by Dan Brotzel

I waffled quite a bit, back and forth with a lot of points for either idea about expanding on individual stories or writing an all-encompassing review. The latter plan gained more traction when I started listing out personal one line reactions and realised it would involve me saying more than the book does during a… Continue reading Hotel Du Jack And Other Stories by Dan Brotzel
