Weeping Women Hotel, Paperback


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.
