SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE
SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION

A masterful, exuberant novel from the Booker Prize-shortlisted, Women's Prize-winning author of How to be both and the critically acclaimed Seasonal quartet

'Ali Smith has got style, ideas and punch. Read her' Jeanette Winterson

Five people: four are living, three are strangers, two are sisters, one is dead. In her highly acclaimed and ambitious book, the brilliant Scottish writer Ali Smith brings alive five unforgettable characters and traces their intersecting lives.

This is a short novel with big themes (time, chance, money, death) but an eye for tiny detail: the taste of dust, the weight of a few coins in the hand, the pleasurable pain of a stone in one's shoe . . .

*****

'As infectious as a pop song, the story bursts open from the very first page and demands to be read in one sitting'The Times

'Hotel World is essential reading from a major talent'Independent

“Good, quick read”

Whilst Smith gets a little carried away with some silly cameo appearances towards the book's conclusion, Hotel World delivers an often moving tale with a warm sense of humour and some genuinely touching insights... More

“Moving work”

I bought this book based on the blurb, and didn't realise it would be written in such an unusual way. However, this was one of those good surprises. Each chapter is written in a different characters style, and... More

“A sweet and startlingly beautiful novel”

A jigsaw of a book, with each chapter's narrative voice taking you away then towards the final picture.
