The Hotel Neversink – February 27 Book Discussion

There’s still time to get reading before we gather for our monthly book discussion on Saturday evening, February 27th at 6:30 PM for Havdalah and a book discussion.

Here’s more about this very intriguing novel.  See what you think.  Email us at jewishtaunton@gmail.com for Zoom information.

THE HOTEL NEVERSINK BY ADAM O’FALLON PRICE
“A gripping, atmospheric, heart-breaking, almost-ghost story. Not since Stephen King’s Overlook has a hotel hiding a secret been brought to such vivid life.” -Lydia Kiesling, author of The Golden State   Thirty-one years after workers first broke ground, the magnificent Hotel Neversink in the Catskills finally opens to the public. Then a young boy disappears.  This mysterious vanishing-and the ones that follow-will brand the lives of three generations. At the root of it all is Asher Sikorsky, the ambitious and ruthless patriarch whose purchase of the hotel in 1931 set a haunting legacy into motion. His daughter Jeanie sees the Hotel Neversink into its most lucrative era, but also its darkest. Decades later, Asher’s grandchildren grapple with the family’s heritage in their own ways: Len fights to keep the failing, dilapidated hotel alive, and Alice sets out to finally uncover the murderer’s identity. Told by an unforgettable chorus of Sikorsky family members-a matriarch, a hotel maid, a traveling comedian, the hotel detective, and many others, the book is the gripping portrait of a Jewish family in the Catskills over the course of a century. With an unerring eye and with prose both comic and tragic, Adam O’Fallon-Price details one man’s struggle for greatness, no matter the cost, and a long-held family secret that threatens to undo it all.
