Dubray Books review:
Welcome to the Hotel Alpha – home of the biggest parties, the most colourful characters, and definitely the place to be seen. Howard, the larger-than-life owner, will ensure your welcome is warm and your stay is comfortable. When tragedy strikes and a young mother is killed in a fire, Howard adopts her blind son, turning the hotel into a sanctuary – even as he is crushed by the many secrets that he keeps. Meanwhile, life is threatening to leave Graham the concierge behind, despite him finding comfort, stability and family in one of London’s best hotels. Hotel Alpha is the fifth novel by stand-up comedian Mark Watson and it is full of his trademark humour and sensitivity. If you have never read anything by him before, I urge you to try Hotel Alpha; I guarantee you will come back for more.
Olivia Bergin, Dubray Books Kilkenny
