'A beautiful story.' Anna Paquin 'I am always drawn to stories with strong and complex female protagonists. And I always knew the first movie I would want to direct would contain the role I would have killed to play when I was a teenager. This book moved and provoked me in ways I can't fully articulate. I am incredibly excited to transform Anna Stothard's extraordinary work into a film I hope we will both be proud of.' Anna Paquin 'The Pink Hotel is mysterious, lyrical, and utterly absorbing, by turns funny and forlorn. Anna Stothard is a precise, insightful observer of what it means to be human, and her writing bristles with sexiness and suspense, love, loss, and longing. This is the best book I've read in years.' Davy Rothbart, author of My Heart is an Idiot 'The quality of her writing is remarkable.' Helen Dunmore 'She breathes new life into old literature.' Fay Weldon 'Astonishingly good... Stothard's writing is accomplished and very engaging.' The Times 'A poignant novel about identity, and a love/hate letter to LA.' Glamour Magazine 'Matters of personal identity underlie an exhilarating ride through LA's seamier side in the company of a hard-bitten yet highly engaging protagonist.' The Daily Mail 'A gently transgressive, transatlantic quest that conjures up both the languid heat of LA and the confusions of a young woman on the cusp.' The Lady
