Hotel World (Paperback, New Ed)


Check into Hotelworld where the guests are about to experience a long dark night of the soul

Remember you must live.

Five people: four are living, three are strangers, two are sisters, one is dead.

Hotel World takes us through a night in the life of five people's very different worlds. It's luxurious for some, but a long drop for others. Cash or credit?

Ali Smith's innovative and extraordinary novel checks us in to the smooth plush world of the Global. But is it really the kind of place you want to spend the rest of your life in?

Playful, defiant, richly inventive, Hotel World is a riotous elegy, a deadpan celebration, an alchemy of opposite worlds colliding to make a modern parable of connection and indifference, and, in the end, a defence of love.

Forget room service. This is a life-affirming book about death, a death-affirming book about life.

Check-out is at noon.
