Heather O’Neill’s third novel displays the author’s trademark combination of melancholy and whimsy


The Lonely Hearts Hotel

Heather O’Neill


HEATHER O’NEILL EXPLORED the short-story form in her previous book, Daydreams of Angels, which was shortlisted for the 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize. A departure from her first two titles, the best-selling novels Lullabies for Little Criminals (winner of the 2007 Canada Reads competition) and The Girl Who Was Saturday Night (itself shortlisted for the Giller Prize in 2014) the generic form of Daydreams of Angels fit more closely with O’Neill’s fantastically meandering sensibility, which focuses largely on poverty and wonderment in predigital Montreal.
