Hotel World

by Ali Smith

Worth reading for the first section alone - have you ever read anything in the voice of someone who is dead? Quirky and disturbing, this is a book that will get under your skin if you let it. It's not an easy read but the mix of poetry and observation of ordinary life is startling and fascinating.


The cage around my heart broke open and my heart came out. I think it was my heart. It broke out of my chest and it jammed into my mouth. This is how it began. For the first time (too late) I knew how my heart tasted.
