Liska Jacobs - THE PINK HOTEL - Episode 65

Liska Jacobs - THE PINK HOTEL - Episode 65

On this episode of Salt Lake Dirt I welcome back author Liska Jacobs. Liska has been one of my favorite writers from the past few years. Her novel The Pink Hotel will be released July 19th on MCD. The book is incredible and I encourage everyone to pick up a copy. Liska will be in the USA promoting the book and you'll be able to find some of those events if you scroll to the bottom of the page.

Thanks for listening!


About The Pink Hotel:

"Newlyweds Keith and Kit Collins can hardly believe their luck when the  general manager of the iconic, opulent Pink Hotel invites them to come  for a luxurious stay as a bid to hire Keith. Kit loves their small-town  life, but Keith has always wanted more, and the glittering, lily-scented  lobby makes him feel right at home.

Soon after their arrival,  wildfires sweep through the surrounding mountains and Los Angeles  becomes a pressure cooker, with riots breaking out across the city amid  rolling blackouts. The Pink Hotel closes its doors to "outsiders," and  Keith and Kit find themselves confined with an anxious, disgruntled  staff and a growing roster of eccentric, ultra-wealthy, dangerously idle  guests who flock to the hotel for sanctuary, company, and  entertainment.

The Pink Hotel exposes a tenuous class  system within its walls, full of insurmountable expectations and  unspoken resentments, which deteriorate as the city burns. In her  barbed, provocative new novel, Liska Jacobs explores the corrosive  nature of greed and interrogates the notion of true love, while hurtling  readers toward certain disaster." (Source: MCD)
