Description:

Set in contemporary New Orleans but working its way back in time, A Small Hotel chronicles the relationship between Michael and Kelly Hays, who have decided to separate after twenty years of marriage. The book begins on the day that the Hays are to finalize their divorce. Kelly is due to be in court, but instead she drives to New Orleans and checks into the hotel where she and Michael fell in love some twenty years earlier and where she must now make a decision that will forever affect her, Michael, and their nineteen-year-old daughter. Butler masterfully weaves scenes of the present with memories from both Michael and Kelly, showing two people deeply in love but struggling with their own inabilities to express this love.

Quotes:

...a brief, intense portrayal of the collapse of a marriage...unusual and worthy...delivers a surprising charge., Washington Post

[A] deliciously, unapologetically romantic novel...[Butler's] empathetic, precise writing flirts with melodrama but never feels hackneyed. In less skillful hands, this story would be a guilty pleasure. Instead, it's just a pleasure., O Magazine

With mesmerizing detail, Butler excavates layers of memory and illuminates moments of both tenderness and alienation., New Yorker

...skillful plotting and absorbing characters..., New York Times

Starred review. A sleek, erotic, and suspenseful drama about men who cannot say the word love and the women they harm...Butler executes a plot twist of profound proportions in this gorgeously controlled, unnerving, and beautifully revealing tale of the consequences of emotional withholding., Donna Seaman, , Booklist
