The Glass Hotel description

Emily St. John Mandel’s exquisite new novel tells of the porous boundaries between past and present, rich and poor, living and dead. The Glass Hotel follows tough and beautiful Vincent, whose fall off a container ship into a storm-tossed ocean opens and closes the book, and of Jonathan, who whisks Vincent off into the “kingdom of money”, but whose wealth is a Bernie Madoff-esque mirage. With its intricate, interlocking narratives, and rich haunting prose, The Glass Hotel is a beguiling puzzle of a book that is a joy to solve.

Please note that Emily St. John Mandel will join us in the Garden via live streaming from New York, USA.
