Hotel Theory

Being-at-home, Heidegger says, is not the "primordial phenomenon."  "Not-being-at-home" is more fundamental.  To be not-at-home may mean to be at hotel

That is from Wayne Koestenbaum’s recent Hotel Theory, which is possibly the funniest book I have read, with the caveat that a satire of queered Heidegger theory, combined with a fictional story of Lana Turner and Liberace, may not be your thing.  I also loved The Queen’s Throat; Koestenbaum is one of the most original writers working today.  Here are reviews of the book.
