The dazzling and original new novel from acclaimed stand-up comedian and author Mark Watson
From the Back Cover
'Acutely observed and suffused with humanity and warmth' J. W. Ironmonger, author of The Notable Brain of Maximilian Ponder
Howard York - self-made man and founder of London's extraordinary Hotel Alpha - is the kind of person who makes you feel anything is possible. He is idolized by his blind adopted son, Chas, and Graham, the inimitable concierge, whose lives revolve around the Alpha. But when two mysterious disappearances raise questions that no one seems willing to answer, Chas and Graham must ask themselves whether Howard's vision of the perfect hotel has been built on secrets as well as dreams . . .
Captivating, brilliant and full of surprises, Hotel Alpha is an ingenious novel about the incidental and life-changing ways in which we connect with one another. You can discover more about the hotel and its inhabitants in 100 extra stories at www.hotelalphastories.com.
'Funny, sharply observed and unexpectedly moving' The Times on Eleven

Having finished the novel (I devoured it quite quickly, sitting in the sun in my back garden), I am only part way through the 100 additional stories accessible via the website, which I am also greatly enjoying (only wish they were downloadable to my kindle as I can't see my computer screen out in the sunshine!)
It was an original, and easy read, with an interesting storyline with some intriguing postscripts.
Hotel Alpha is a richly written book with plenty of fascinating characters which gave us lots to talk about. His descriptions are so vivid that you get totally drawn in to the story and feel like you are actually in the hotel.
Mark Watson has also written 100 additional short stories which expand the story of the hotel and lesser characters in the book - they are available free online on his website - a bit like extras on a DVD - which is a cool idea.
