Summary
From the multi-award-winning author of the literary phenomenon A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing. At the mid-point of her life 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, but bound by rules of her choosing. There, amid the detritus of her travels, 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
Summary
Checking into hotels in cities throughout the world to maintain an anonymous existence, a nameless woman in exile assesses memories of the men and women she has encountered in her lifetime and what it might mean to return home
