10.99 The Motel Life: A Novel

With "echoes of Of Mice and Men"(The Bookseller, UK), The Motel Life explores the frustrations and failed dreams of two Nevada brothers—on the run after a hit-and-run accident—who, forgotten by society, and short on luck and hope, desperately cling to the edge of modern life.

Editorial reviews (1 review)

The book is an unapologetic ode to self-defeat, a loose collection of deadpan cataclysms in which the most heartening episode revolves around the rescue of an undernourished dog. Its charm is unassuming, and a little clumsy at the outset, but Vlautin’s novel rewards the patient. At times its appeal is irresistible.
