Senior, before leaving his homeland (Austro-Hungary), to save on the rent, took up residence in the famous Turkish Baths of Budapest (the "seal castle"). In this book, which is mainly a love story, we follow the protagonist - a good-looking actor, as an upper-class girl falls in love with him - against backstories taken from the lives of the girl and the other "seals" and their various survival scams. I am weak on love stories (yet even I can see that there is plenty of potential), and though the ending is great, I need help to make it work cinematically. As 5 of 7 Senior-books, The Seal Castle is now for the first time available in English
