"She has put us on notice that we talk about race by not talking about it"

The Guardian

<p><b>Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic of searing eroticism and sensuality set against the broad sweep of twentieth-century history.</b><br /><b>Now a BBC radio play starring Anne-Marie Duff and Bill Paterson, dramatised by Dennis Potter.</b><br /><b>'A novel of blazing imaginative and intellectual force' Salman Rushdie </b></p><p>It is a dream of electrifying eroticism and inexplicable violence, recounted by a young woman to her analyst, Sigmund Freud. It is a horrifying yet restrained narrative of the Holocaust. It is a searing vision of the wounds of our century and an attempt to heal them. Interweaving poetry and case history, fantasy and historical truth-telling, THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic of enduring emotional power that attempts nothing less than to reconcile the notion of individual destiny with that of historical fate.</p><p><b>'A remarkable and original novel . . . there is no novel to my knowledge which resembles this in technique or ideas. It stands alone' Graham Greene</b></p><p><b>'Astonishing . . . </b><b>A forthright sensuality mixed with a fine historical feeling for the nightmare moments in modern history, a dreamlike fluidity and quickness' John Updike</b></p><p><b>'I quickly came to feel that I had found that book, that mythical book, that would explain us to ourselves' Leslie Epstein, <i>New York Times</i></b></p>
