“Ioannis Pappos’ Hotel Living could be The Great Gatsby, reincarnated in a contemporary hell beyond even F. Scott Fitzgerald’s imagination. It’s harrowing. It’s smart and sexy; it’s funny and tragic. It is, in short, a great and terrible beauty of a book.”–Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winner and New York Times bestselling author of A Wild Swan: And Other Tales and The Hours

“If Trollope were alive today and he wanted to write The Way We Live Now about New York’s élite consultants, he would have written Hotel Living. Really a terrific book.”–Edmund White
