We'd like to nominate Koestenbaum's experimental new book, Hotel Theory, as a candidate to join bibles in lodging-house drawers. An essay and a novel run in parallel columns on each page. In the former, Koestenbaum meditates on the meaning of "hotel existence" (the euphoric state of never dwelling anywhere). The latter is a dime-store tale about the sexual escapades of Liberace and Lana Turner and eschews the use of a, an, and the.
