Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic of searing eroticism and sensuality set against the broad sweep of twentieth-century history.
Now a BBC radio play starring Anne-Marie Duff and Bill Paterson, dramatised by Dennis Potter.
'A novel of blazing imaginative and intellectual force' Salman Rushdie

It is a dream of electrifying eroticism and inexplicable violence, recounted by a young woman to her analyst, Sigmund Freud. It is a horrifying yet restrained narrative of the Holocaust. It is a searing vision of the wounds of our century and an attempt to heal them. Interweaving poetry and case history, fantasy and historical truth-telling, THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic of enduring emotional power that attempts nothing less than to reconcile the notion of individual destiny with that of historical fate.

'A remarkable and original novel . . . there is no novel to my knowledge which resembles this in technique or ideas. It stands alone' Graham Greene

'Astonishing . . . A forthright sensuality mixed with a fine historical feeling for the nightmare moments in modern history, a dreamlike fluidity and quickness' John Updike

'I quickly came to feel that I had found that book, that mythical book, that would explain us to ourselves' Leslie Epstein, New York Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
A novel of blazing imaginative and intellectual force -- Salman Rushdie
To describe this novel as spine-tingling in its indescribable poetic effect would be to trivialize its profoundly tragic theme. Say then that it is heart-stunning * The New York Times *
Astonishing ... A forthright sensuality mixed with a fine historical feeling for the nightmare moments in modern history, a dreamlike fluidity and quickness -- John Updike

A dazzler that lingers in the mind

* People *
A remarkable and original novel ... there is no novel to my knowledge which resembles this in technique or ideas. It stands alone -- Graham Greene
This novel is a reminder that fiction can amaze * Time *
Precise, troubling, brilliant * Observer *
