Praise for Strange Hotel:
“This short, emotionally charged novel by the winner of the 2014 Women’s Prize For Fiction unfolds in funny, fierce prose; by its close, the future is beckoning hopefully.” —Eithne Farry, Event Magazine
“In Strange Hotel, a nameless woman’s voyage through a string of hotel rooms gradually reveals an inner world of striking tumult and depth, as her meditations draw her, and us, deeper into the unsettled tides of her own past. Eimear McBride has created a powerfully hypnotic novel of consciousness, one that traces the intricacies of thought and memory in prose so thrilling, so dagger-sharp, it makes the heart race.” ―Laura van den Berg, author of The Third Hotel
“No writer currently working excites me more than Eimear McBride—in her writing of the body, in her radical reimagining of the sentence, in her invention of new intimacies. Nothing else feels so fresh, so radically new. Strange Hotel challenges and expands my sense of what art can do. Each of McBride’s novels feels like an event not just in English-language literature but in the English language itself.” —Garth Greenwell, author of Cleanness and What Belongs to You
“Rich with mystery, complexity and seductive charm…. McBride [gives us] a beguiling, enigmatic heroine. Her short stays and brief flings provide tantalizing glimpses of who she is and how far she has traveled.” —StarTribune
“This new narrative is beautifully written. It is thoughtful, evocative, elegaic, honest and intelligent.” —Sharon Chisvin, Winnipeg Free Press
“The accretion of detail, of nuance, of language are at the heart of McBride’s work. And Strange Hotel, her third book, is a powerful demonstration of her ability to marshal words to peerless effect…. Strange Hotel is a finely controlled, complex and emotionally absorbing novel that manages to burrow deep into the heart of something essential about the human experiences of love and loss. That’s quite an achievement in so short a work.” —Carl Wilkinson, Financial Times
