This Hotel

About the Book

After Lester finds his wife in the arms of another man, he checks into This Hotel—where a shape-shifting bellhop escorts him on a whirlwind tour of long corridors and provocative rooms inhabited by the tenants of Lester’s subconscious. With a cast of slinky and colourful characters, This Hotel is hilarious, clever, and sexy—a moving journey to the centre of everyman.


This Hotel is a hall of theatrical mirrors reflecting paranoia, intrigue, romance and just plain lust.”
–The Globe and Mail

“Witty, tart, it takes you on a giddy ride before dropping you into a final tableau that will leave you discussing its meaning long after the curtain has fallen.”
–Toronto Star
