Read full description of the books:



A whimsical yet dark exploration of rigged biology, femininity and guns, "Hotel Andromeda" revolves around the lives of five girls, each born on the same day to the same mother but different fathers. Regina, Lydia, Pamela, Dora and Danielle have been under constant surveillance since they were infants. They live alone in a hotel--but is it a hotel? The rooms are empty, the girls have daily appointments with a talk therapist and their mother, a champion marksman, seems to have forgotten all about them. As their boredom intensifies, so does their deviousness; their ideas about personality and identity are challenged by the oppressive predictability of their environment. Combining lurid, surreal photographs by Jenny Gage with Heidi Julavits' penchant for the giddily sinister, "Hotel Andromeda" provides a wicked meditation on girlhood, alienation and the perversions born from being watched in isolation.

Read information about the author

Ebook Hotel Andromeda read Online! Heidi Suzanne Julavits is an American author and co-editor of The Believer magazine. She has been published in The Best Creative Nonfiction Vol. 2, Esquire, Story, Zoetrope All-Story, and McSweeney's Quarterly. Her novels include The Mineral Palace (2000), The Effect of Living Backwards (2003) and The Uses of Enchantment (2006) and The Vanishers (2012).

She was born and grew up in Portland, Maine, before attending Dartmouth College. She later went on to earn an MFA from Columbia University.

She wrote the article "Rejoice! Believe! Be Strong and Read Hard!" (subtitled: "A Call For A New Era Of Experimentation, and a Book Culture That Will Support It") in the debut issue of The Believer, a publication which attempts to avoid snarkiness and "give people and books the benefit of the doubt."

In 2005, she told the New York Times culture writer A.O. Scott how'd she decided on The Believer's tone: "I really saw 'the end of the book' as originating in the way books are talked about now in our culture and especially in the most esteemed venues for book criticism. It seemed as though their irrelevance was a foregone conclusion, and we were just practicing this quaint exercise of pretending something mattered when of course everyone knew it didn't." She added her own aim as book critic would be "to endow something with importance, by treating it as an emotional experience."

She has also written short stories, such as "The Santosbrazzi Killer", which was published in Harper's Magazine.

Julavitz currently lives in Maine and Manhattan with her husband, the writer Ben Marcus, and their children
