Overview

Problemski Hotel is an extremely fascinating book in which the daily life of asylum-seekers is related in an inimitable way . . . A profound portrayal of a group of people with no future.”— De Standaard der Letteren

A comic novel on a very serious subject. Dimitri Verhulst, an investigative journalist, had himself locked up in the asylum-seekers center at Arendonk for several days for a Flemish magazine. He then wrote a magazine article, but the experience would not let go of him. He wrote this comic, unabashedly politically incorrect novel, which is told from the perspective of asylum-seeker Bipul Masli, a press photographer from Somalia. The action takes place in an asylum-seekers center in Belgium in the final weeks of 2001.
