The New York Post calls Will Wiles’ The Way Inn one of this week’s must-read books. While the story is kind of insane, the punny title probably didn’t hurt either.

Welcome back, Kafka? From Wiles, the author of “Care of Wooden Floors,” a new novel that examines the emptiness of the business world. Hero Neil Double is a professional conference-goer: hired by his clients to attend industry conferences so that they don’t have to. At the bureaucratically nightmarish conference of conference organizers, everything goes awry for Double when he meets a woman he knows he has seen before, finds his tickets and documents have all been voided and gets lost in a hotel that he discovers has the same never-ending, riddled structure as Kafka’s “Castle.”
