Parismita Singh weaves all of these worlds within worlds together with impressive skill. Singh's attention to detail lends The Hotel an air of authenticity, reinforced by the distinctly folkloric flavour of quite a few of the sections.

Parismita Singh weaves all of these worlds within worlds together with impressive skill. Boccaccio's Decameron and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales are two fairly well-known works employing the technique.

Centrepiece is a gorgeous collection, with page after page of beauty and surprise. What emerges is a heterogeneous series of portraits and worldviews.

Parismita Singh could have made a difference. But Singh is not as talented an artist as storyteller. Her novel runs on the theme of escape; travellers stranded at the hotel at the end of the world tell stories-the agony of being death’s messenger, paradise found and lost-that take you beyond the frontiers of reality. Good ideas inspired by miniatures and mandalas fall flat, some frames are illegible and creating distinct faces seems to be a particular difficulty. There’s no glory in being a graphic novelist without formal training if that blot of amateurishness stains your entire work

In the hotel at the end of the world it's business as usual, as Pema dishes up rice and pork curry to travellers who stop by for a drink and refuge from the rains. Everyone there has a story to tell, and at times they end up revealing more than they want to. On their journey to China, Kona and Kuja, bound together by fate, stumble upon the trail of the Floating Island, promised land of plenty. Pema's story is about lost love, while her husband speaks of homesick Japanese soldiers in Manipur and the Naga hills during World War II. The Prophet takes us back to the quest for the Floating Island, leading us to the little girl's story as she sets out to fetch water and chances upon something quite unexpected.
