Praise for Hotel 21

“Senta Rich’s debut novel Hotel 21 tackles some big themes, from self-discovery, sexuality, and mental health to the complex bonds of female friendship.”

Paste Magazine

“A brilliantly original story . . . keep[s] a reader’s attention to the last. Rich is adept at creating that most elusive yet gratifying of literary characters: the badly behaved woman whom everyone will root for..As offbeat character studies go, this is as good as it gets”

The Irish Independent

"Warm, funny, and sharply written debut . . . a strong and authentic voice. I want people to read this book—there’s sex, emotional intensity, love (both sisterly and romantic). . . . If there’s any justice in the world this will be a huge hit
