Waterstones Says

McBride’s A Girl is a Half-formed Thing swept all before it six years ago and now Strange Hotel looks set to cause a literary similar sensation with its delicately poised narrative of a woman caught between multiple hotel rooms and the rich, emotive memories that they provoke. Written with singular lyrical power, Strange Hotel is a gorgeous, elegant novella about the anonymous spaces that come to define us.

From the multi-award-winning author of the literary phenomenon A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing.

At the mid-point of her life a woman enters an Avignon hotel room. She's been here once before - but while the room hasn't changed, she is a different person now. Forever caught between check-in and check-out, she will go on to occupy other hotel rooms, from Prague to Oslo, Auckland to Austin, each as anonymous as the last, but bound by rules of her choosing.

There, amid the detritus of her travels, the matchbooks, cigarettes, keys and room-service wine, she will negotiate with memory, with the men she sometimes meets, and with what it might mean to return home.
