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





Sunny Singh is a London based writer. She has published three novels, a non-fiction book on lives of single women in India, numerous short stories and essays.

Thoughts on #Metoo. If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “Me too” as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem. Please copy/paste. Further to this: The silence from men is deafening. And no, I don’t want to hear platitudes from you. I don’t want ‘I believe you’ or ‘expletives’ and so on. I need you to speak to other men. I need to you to speak OPENLY with other men. This one is ENTIRELY on you. I also need you to start noticing what you consume: how narratives that enable this entitlement men feel to women lives, bodies, minds is built in to culture. So when YOU don’t notice – or really don’t care about – the sexism in GoT or Bladerunner or Star Wars (or Bollywood/Korean/Nollywood/Chinese/French/Italian cinema), YOU enable this behaviour. I also need you to STOP making this about you. Do you feel bad that you have structural advantages and safety that I don’t? Good. You should! But don’t make it MY work to nudge you out of your manly sulk, to comfort you and EXPLAIN yet again how my life as a woman is not fun. Really believe you love women in your life? Then do some work. On your own! I added this because I hope the many young women who reach out to me online and IRL will feel less alone. That men AND women will realise that social class doesn’t protect us; professional success doesn’t protect us; hell, even racism does not protect us! But mostly because in a culture that assigns shame to the victims of injustice, speaking of it is an act of courage. And if seeing women in relative ‘positions of power’ say #MeToo helps even one woman, it is worth it.
