Dominic Smith On Tour: The Electric Hotel

 

If you loved The Last Painting of Sara de Vos, you’ll be captivated by The Electric Hotel—and nothing is better than seeing Dominic Smith in person to lead the conversation on his spellbinding novel. With an array of bookstore events, festival appearances, luncheons and library talks lined up, his tour is sure to be a hit.

A sweeping work of historical fiction, The Electric Hotel shimmers between past and present as it tells the story of the rise and fall of a prodigious film studio, and one man’s doomed obsession with all that passes in front of the viewfinder.

Claude Ballard, a French pioneer of silent films, was once a concession agent for the Lumiére brothers—the inventors of cinema. He now spends his days taking photographs of runaways and the striplings along Sunset Boulevard.

When a film-history student comes to interview Claude about The Electric Hotel—the lost masterpiece that bankrupted him and ended the career of his muse Sabine Montrose—the past comes surging back. Come and see Dominic Smith on his electrifying tour at the following events:
