This book is in one word, surreal.

A better summary of this book, I feel, is the first page of the Introduction, which I highly recommend reading before you read the book. The Introduction, that is. It makes the book make a good deal more sense. The Good Inn is "a book based on a soundtrack score that had not yet been composed about the first narrative pornographic
movie for a feature film that did not yet exist". Intrigued? Now go read the book.
