About the Book
The receptionist at the Hotel Kumrovec is worried about the plants that are engulfing the building. No guest has stayed in this hotel for years. The modernist architecture of the complex looks as though it had dropped here from some other place. The only reason for this building being here, far away from any major roads or intersections or even towns, is that the village of Kumrovec is the birth place of Tito, the erstwhile President of the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia.
