Bennington author’s new novel featured in prestigious Indie Next List

Bennington author Genevieve Plunkett’s latest book, In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel, is featured in the September Indie Next List. The monthly list, compiled by the American Booksellers Association, includes the top nominations from booksellers across the country, showcasing the best new releases. Plunkett’s book will be released on August 15th.

Exeter, New Hampshire, bookseller, Stefanie Kiper, describes Plunkett’s book as “a beautiful meditation on love, madness, motherhood, and art.” Kiper says “Plunkett's writing is achingly gorgeous and Portia is a character for the ages.” 

Reading In the Lobby of the Dream Hotel is like looking through a kaleidoscope, with its shifting patterns and scintillating colors. The language sparkles, as Plunkett conjures up remarkable scenes and beautifully observed details.

Plunkett’s previous book, Prepare Her, a collection of short stories, also received tremendous acclaim, with one New York Times critic likening Plunkett’s writing to that of Shirley Jackson.
