Synopsis

The Pink Hotel by Anna Stothard

A seventeen-year-old London girl flies to Los Angeles for the funeral of her mother Lily, from whom she had been separated in her childhood. After stealing a suitcase of letters, clothes and photographs from her mum's bedroom at the top of a hotel on Venice Beach, the girl spends her summer travelling around Los Angeles returning love letters and photographs to the men who had known her mother. As she discovers more about Lily's past and tries to re-enact her life, she comes to question the foundations of her own personality.

Reviews

'Astonishingly good... '
The Times

'A poignant novel about identity, and a love/hate letter to LA.'
Glamour Magazine

'Matters of personal identity underlie an exhilarating ride through LA's seamier side in the company of a hard-bitten yet highly engaging protagonist.'
The Daily Mail

'A gently transgressive, transatlantic quest that conjures up both the languid heat of LA and the confusions of a young woman on the cusp.'
The Lady

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
