About the Book

From the winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction

‘Powerful . . . truly a living and breathing thing.’ Financial Times


‘McBride is on blistering form.’ Sinéad 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.

  • Eimear McBride

    Eimear McBride trained at Drama Centre London. Her debut novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing received a number of awards including the Goldsmiths Prize, the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction and Irish Novel of the Year. She occasionally writes and reviews for the GuardianTLS and the New Statesman.

“Strange Hotel already has the stamp of immortality on it. A deep dissection of desire and aloneness, in its familiarity and strangeness, it seems even newer and more radical than McBride’s previous novels. As Anne Enright has said, she is something of a genius.”
- Sebastian Barry
“Her words and characters squirrel their way into your soul . . . Magnetic and fascinating.”
- Stylist
