Hideyuki Kikuchi points out in the post script: "On rereading this book, I thought to myself, “This is Grand Hotel!" That film spawned a whole genre of movies where individuals from all walks of life assemble in a single place. Jan, Maria, the Stows, Bierce, Weizmann—all of these people are forced to examine their lives as they travel with D."
