Quick overview 'Eimear McBride is that old fashioned thing, a genius.' Anne Enright A nameless woman enters a non-descript hotel room she's been in once before, many years ago.
Product description

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

'Nothing else feels so fresh, so radically new. Strange Hotel challenges and expands my sense of what art can do.'
Garth Greenwell, author of Cleanness and What Belongs to You

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.
