This book will save your life by A. M Homes( Book )

63 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Novak is a modern-day Everyman, a middle-aged divorcé trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one--except his trainer, nutritionist, and housekeeper. He is functionally dead and doesn't even notice until two incidents--an attack of intense pain that lands him in the emergency room, and the discovery of an expanding sinkhole outside his house--conspire to hurl him back into the world. He forms the first of many new relationships on his way home from the hospital. In the end, Richard is also brought back in closer touch with his family, including his estranged son. The promised land of Los Angeles is also very much a character in this novel about compassion, transformation, and what can happen if you are willing to lose yourself and open up to the world around you.--From publisher description

In Los Angeles, the New York-based novelist and short-story writer A. M. Homes checks us into the famed hotel Chateau Marmont and uses life at this iconic landmark as a multifaceted prism through which she views and experiences Los Angeles culture, past and present. Built in the 1920s, the Chateau Marmont is where the famous and infamous have always come to stay-some for a few days, others for months at a time-and sometimes, like John Belushi, to die. It is a mythological mecca, the focal point for a city of visionaries, romantics, and dreamers. And it is the site where Homes, as she mines the strange heart of Los Angeles, shows herself to be an uncommonly nimble and entertaining cultural anthropologist
