“Ioannis Pappos’ Hotel Living could be The Great Gatsby , reincarnated in a contemporary hell beyond even F. Scott Fitzgerald’s imagination. It’s harrowing. It’s smart and sexy; it’s funny and tragic. It is, in short, a great and terrible beauty of a book.”
—Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winner and New York Times bestselling author of The Snow Queen and The Hours
I already have this novel packed in my bag for vacation! I cannot wait to be sitting on the beach feeling the ocean tickle my toes as I enjoy a lovely Merlot while reading Hotel Living. I bet I won’t be able to put it down.
More about Hotel Living.
HOTEL LIVING is a period novel, a love story of the 00s, the decade that some partied like the roaring 1920s and woke up in the 1930s, in the biggest depression. In this semi-autobiographical debut novel that recalls the excess of The Wolf of Wall Street and the searching contemplation of A Single Man, Ioannis Pappos presents a world of unique hotels, bespoke suits, insider trading, fistfights, and fast sex. HOTEL LIVING is a love story set in the recent past and a smart social critique—written by an author who experienced firsthand the heady highs of the world of business in the ’00s, and lived to tell the tale. As much an incisive commentary as it is riveting storytelling, HOTEL LIVING is filled with surprisingly tender observations about identity, loneliness, and human connection. It is about waking up and, hopefully, growing up.
HOTEL LIVING is released by HarperCollins on June 23rd, 2015.

Might I add he's rather handsome. That wasn't in his bio but just my personal opinion. It should be added though.
Women enjoy looking at a handsome man.
