HOTEL ARCADIA

Hotel Arcadia

“Sunny Singh’s Hotel Arcadia is the ultimate nail-biting thriller, as well as a work of literary art worthy of a Booker Prize shortlist.”
Edward Wilson

“The excellence of this novel is its canny synthesis of elements: the essential thriller plot (at times reminiscent of the most powerful writing of Graham Greene; no mean feat in itself) and the careful accretion of character detail…”
Barry Forshaw

“It’s well-written, tightly-plotted and great fun.”
Amanda Craig

ALSO AVAILABLE IN FRENCH AND DUTCH EDITIONS

So I was in convo with Paul Beatty yesterday at Sutton House and then chaired a QnA. Paul was exhausted and jetlagged but we still managed a wide ranging conversation about his book and writing. We discussed how his book is seen as satire (even though he has expressly said it isn’t) rather than ‘reportage’ (which is how one reader described it and is perhaps a better description). That perhaps describing it as satire is a way to manage the discomfort it evokes. We talked about the horror of the n-word (and the South African equivalent, k-word) and how people who will never understand it full power are keenest to use it. My favourite part was Paul describing his novel as being about ‘negotiating life in LA.’ The QnA afterwards was engaged, fascinating, respectful (with a couple of glitches – I hope I managed to keep my usually expressive face relatively blank for some of it). Afterwards, he said it was one of the best ones he’d done which is kind of him but perhaps also telling given the Sydney festival fiasco (and various others). I still wish Alex or Ellah or someone else had been in my chair and had sent the organisers to various people. None of them could do it so it fell to me. Now I am glad I did. And that I did my part in keeping the focus on celebrating his book for all its complexity.
