An inspired work of literature! I was introduced to Ali Smith while studying creative writing in England and am happy she was recommended to me. 'Hotel World' is an adventure in experimental writing styles, displayed in several short stories that all depict characters whose lives collide in some way with the Global Hotel. It is easy to see how the different characters are linked, but it isn't until the end (the second to last story, to be specific) where it all really seems to come together. That one was also (for me) the most moving of the stories and made the entire book worth the read. Highly recommended to anyone who is a writer, or is interested in seeing non-traditional approaches to the art form.
