Paradise Hotel

About the Book

At some predetermined time over which there is no control, each one of us will end up as dead as an Arctic lemming. To the enormous disappointment of adherents of all faiths and none, the entire human diaspora is destined to spend eternity trapped in a largely unloved British coastal resort, trying to find useful amusements that will occupy the infinite ages ahead. 

Politics, religion, dead celebrities, futility, the Isle of Wight, an atheist god, gypsy sing-alongs, kebabs of dubious provenance, one hundred and forty-four steps to oblivion and a concrete car park that smells of urine: the afterlife is no walk in the park.

“The size of your everyday novel, with the scope of several universes and the coherency of a Southern Baptist on crack.” ~ Stockett Parish Magazine

Prophet of futilitarianism and depressed apocalyptician Another Poet presents the first written paean to the unholy sport of Greasy Churning. Essential reading for all future guests of the Paradise Hotel.

About the Author

Another Poet
Another Poet

Another Poet is an artist, film-maker, poet and writer who lives in a bedsit in the East Midlands, UK. A futilitarian philospher and jaded football supporter, he writes in the early hours of the morning before breakfast on the Unbearable Futility of Being, and occasionally performs live spoken word sets on his main poetic preoccupations of chickens, football and the impending socio-economic apocalypse.
