In Layover, however, Lisa Zeidner gives grief its due, and does so with such wit and high style that the reader's (occasional) tears are mixed with a kind of elation. Exactly what is Claire Newbold mourning? Mostly the death of her young son, which has taken place some time before the novel opens. "Sex is a story you know the ending of," she notes. More or less the same story with the same ending, every time. Yet we want to keep hearing it, the way a child listens to a fairy tale, vigilant for variation. Still, Layover is anything but a bedroom farce.
Lisa Zeidner is the author of five novels, most recently LOVE BOMB, and two books of poems. She is a professor in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Rutgers University, Camden.
Layover is a novel by the American writer, Lisa Zeidner, first published in 1999 by Random House. It is one of New York Times' Notable Books of the Year. As of 2016, a film of Layover is in production. The novel focuses on the theme of maternal grief.
I stayed in the Cincinnati hotel for two-and-a-half days, one in that room, which had not been booked again after I changed my mind. The next day I watched a man down the hall leave his room-I’d stayed in that room before too, and just happened to have the key in my collection. The articles forewarned that hotel management sometimes neglects to rekey when a key card is not returned to them, especially in smaller, less computerized establishments.
Lisa Zeidner is the author of three novels, most recently Limited Partnerships, and two poetry collections, one of which won the Brittingham Prize.

Claire Newbold is not your typical heroine. Smart and sexy, yes, but she's also been known to sneak into a hotel room or two without paying, seduce a teenager in wet bathing trunks, and just check out of things altogether--like her job. And her marriage. No wonder, though. Claire's been careening off heartbreak. Her only child has died, she may be infertile, and her husband has had an affair.
No longer a mother, not sure she wants to be a wife, Claire moves from hotel to hotel, basking in the anonymity of travel and forbidden sex. She even comes to believe she is clairvoyant, able to "read" into the souls of others. Eventually she begins to see into her own soul as she ponders whether or not to return home. As she struggles to repair her marriage and her life, Claire surprises herself -- and us -- by emerging with a new sense of redemption.
