Product description

From the winner of the Women's Prize for Fiction

'Powerful . . . truly a living and breathing thing.' Financial Times

'McBride is on blistering form.' Sinead Gleeson

'Nothing else feels so fresh, so radically new.' Garth Greenwell

'An emotionally enchanting novel that gets deep under the skin.' Dazed

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. There, amid the open suitcases, 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.
