"There was a time in my life when I lived in hotels. Around this time, the time I did not spend in hotels was time I did not live. During this other time I haunted a marriage I was soon to leave. There’s no place like home and, as home seemed hardly to qualify as a place any more, I began to look for something elsewhere..." Joanna Walsh - Hotel
"Each new journey is a mourning for what has been left behind. The wanderer sometimes tries to recreate what has been left behind, in a new place. This always fails." Deborah Levy - Swallowing Geography
I'm delighted to say that I'll be reading from, and talking about Hotel with Deborah Levy at The Freud Museum on Tuesday 8th December, at 7pm.
