’s Reginald Edward Morse is the protagonist and narrator of Hotels of North America, Rick Moody’s latest novel. A reviewer for RateYourLodgings.com, he is also missing in action, when the book begins. All we have of him—and it’s the bulk of the book—are his reviews, his asides, his ruminations about life.
