Literature: The Hotel New Hampshire

The Hotel New Hampshire is a 1981 novel by John Irving. It tells the story of the Berrys, an eccentric family, as they attempt to run a series of hotels.

It could be said to be Irving's most typical novel; That Other Wiki has a chart of all the recurring motifs in Irving's fiction (bears, prostitution, the city of Vienna, and so on) and The Hotel New Hampshire is the only one of his books that contains all of them.

Made into a movie in 1984, starring Jodie Foster, Beau Bridges, Rob Lowe, and Nastassja Kinski.
