The Weeping Women Hotel

by Alexei Sayle - £9.99  Hodder and Stoughton (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780340831229 | ISBN 10: 0340831227

This is a latest novel from highly acclaimed writer Alexei Sayle - bleak, hilarious and completely unique.
 
Northern girl Harriet lives and works on a London estate which is a battleground between the white working class plus the immigrants versus the newly arrived middle class focaccia-eaters. Unhappy and overweight, she hires a personal trainer who lures her into joining the martial arts class he runs. There she learns the regime of the completely phoney martial arts 'master' and embarks on a spiritual and literal journey which leads her to a hotel opposite the railway station at Crewe, the Weeping Women Hotel.
 
This is Alexei Sayle's best work to date - good plot, great characters plus his trademark anarchic black humour.
