  • “Thoroughly absorbing . . . Spanning almost a century, The Hotel Neversink is a multilayered tale of family, fortune, and fate that grows eerily compelling with every passing page.”

    —Ling Ma, author of Severance

  • “A gripping, atmospheric, heartbreaking, almost-ghost story. Not since Stephen King’s Overlook has a hotel hiding a secret been brought to such vivid life.”

    —Lydia Kiesling, author of The Golden State

  • The Hotel Neversink is an astounding literary feat―a murder mystery, a ghost story, a century-spanning family history, and a standup routine all in one, with dramatic variety to rival any Catskills floor show. Adam O’Fallon Price writes with the blackly comic energy of Philip Roth or Lorrie Moore, packing ten novels’ worth of narrative into this compact knish of a book. I wolfed it down in a couple of bites.”

    —J. Robert Lennon, author of Broken River

  • “Adam O’Fallon Price’s The Hotel Neversink, like its namesake, contains many rooms: behind this door, a tragic family saga; behind that one, a comic love story.  And behind it all, a mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end. Book your stay soon.”

    —Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish
