Sayle proves once again that he is no literary dilettante but the real thing
'Alexei Sayle excels. THE WEEPING WOMEN HOTEL is an enjoyable page-turner with a curious plot. If you like your weirdness with warmth and wit, Sayle's your man.'
A brilliant writer...a great novelist
He just seems to keep getting better and better - more supple, more confident and more violent. This is a funny, frightening book which is also refreshingly bonkers. It's meticulously plotted and persuasive.
'Sayle's energy has been boiling over in collections of short stories and novels of immense literary sophistication - books that are also bed-wettingly funny ... With his high-spirited loathing of pretension, he could be our new Kingsley Amis.'
'This is a novel composed of surreal flights of fancy and spot-on comedy.'
