"Xavier Ireland is the assumed name of a radio-show host with a devoted following of listeners riveted by the sleepless loners who call in throughout the night to seek his advice. Off the air, he leads a low-key life of avoiding his neighbors, playing Scrabble, and maintaining an awkward friendship with his cohost, Murray. But his life begins to change when he meets a cleaning lady named Pippa, who becomes a constant, surprisingly necessary presence in his life as he starts facing up to his past and discovering solace and redemption in the most unexpected places. British comedian Mark Watson{u2019}s North American debut humorously and poignantly explores life and death, strangers and friends, heartache and comfort, and whether the choices we don{u2019}t make affect us just as powerfully as the ones we do."--Page 4 of cover

Hotel alpha by Mark Watson( Book )

This is the dazzling and ambitious new novel from acclaimed author and stand-up comedian Mark Watson. Three decades ago, the charismatic Howard York built the empire of his dreams: the Hotel Alpha. It was once the finest in London, but over the years, as the world around it has moved on at an ever more dizzying rate, the hotel has struggled to keep pace. Graham, the Alpha's concierge, has been behind the front desk since the day the hotel opened and has witnessed every stage of its history. Chaz, Howard's blind adopted son, has almost never ventured outside its walls. Both of them view the Alpha as their sanctuary, the place that gives them everything they need. But both of them must now accept that the Alpha no longer offers them the life they most want, and that Howard's vision has been built on secrets as well as dreams
Bullet points by Mark Watson( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and German and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychologist Peter Kristal has a method for sorting out people's lives. By arranging their histories like the index entries in a biography - born, 1; achieves various things, 2-x; dies, x+1 - the sequences of cause and effect that have led to their particular neuroses are cunningly revealed. His technique gains him a modicum of success: a thriving practice in Chicago (a far cry from his native East Anglia), with a client list comprised of rising stars. But Pete is constantly aware that his childhood friend, Richard Aloisi, is always one lap ahead of him. Based in New York, Richard is treating A-list celebrities and advising the NYPD on high-profile court cases. Pete would be the first to admit that his inferiority complex is the key bullet point in his life. But by concentrating on Richard as the source of his problems, he is blind to other factors which put both his life and the lives of others at risk."--BOOK JACKET
