Summary (From the publisher):

From A to Z, from Alpha to Omega, Splendide-Hotel encompasses the natural movement and necessity of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet to grow into words which become phrases and sentences and paragraphs. Each of the twenty-six chapters becomes an opportunity for the author to expand on images suggested by each letter, as well as to reflect upon the workings of the imagination and the art of William Carlos Williams and Arthur Rimbaud. Rimbaud's Splendide-Hotel, in Sorrentino's hands, becomes a hostel and haven for the poet's memorable characters and images, a "Grand Hotel" of the mind, splendidly conceived.
