January 2019 Indie Next List

“Good gracious. I just adore all things written by Lyndsay Faye. Like her glorious Gods of Gotham series,The Paragon Hotel is a clever, fast-paced read with a unique ensemble of characters. Set during the Prohibition era, the novel bounces between the mafia-ridden streets of Harlem and the racially tense community of Portland, Oregon. Steeped in historical detail, The Paragon Hotel is wickedly smart and wholly entertaining. Faye has given readers another deviously delicious story.”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List

“This is writing that zings with an electric liveliness, capturing pitch perfect the ‘anything goes’ attitude of the 1920s. Alice James flees New York City with a bullet wound in her side, hopping the first train west, trying to cover as much ground as possible to get away from her potential pursuers. The wound is serious, her condition deteriorating, and perhaps would be fatal if not for the kindness of Max, a black Pullman porter who risks taking a white woman to the all-black Paragon Hotel. A page-turning romp of a book that wildly entertains while also illuminating the less savory aspects of Oregon’s early history.”
