I Hotel: I Spy Hotel by Karen Tei Yamashita
Page 142 - Inside an unidentified house, sitting around a kitchen table. An array of weapons are on the table.

This hip, multivoiced fusion of prose, playwriting, graphic art, and philosophy spins an epic tale of America's struggle for civil rights as it played out in San Francisco from 1968-1977. Divided into ten novellas, one for each year, I Hotel follows a motley cast of students, laborers, artists, revolutionaries, and provocateurs caught in a riptide of politics, passion, and personal turmoil. By the time the survivors unite to save the famed International Hotel, their stories have come to define the very heart of the American experience.
