Book Overview
ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: THE NEW YORKER - NPR - TIME - THE WASHINGTON POST - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY - AND MORE The perfect novel. . . . Freshly mysterious. -- The Washington Post From the award-winning author of Station Eleven , an exhilarating novel set at the glittering intersection of two seemingly disparate events -- the exposure of a massive criminal enterprise and the mysterious disappearance of a woman from a ship at sea. Vincent is a bartender at the Hotel Caiette, a five-star lodging on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island. On the night she meets Jonathan Alkaitis, a hooded figure scrawls a message on the lobby's glass wall: Why don't you swallow broken glass . High above Manhattan, a greater crime is committed: Alkaitis's billion-dollar business is really nothing more than a game of smoke and mirrors. When his scheme collapses, it obliterates countless fortunes and devastates lives. Vincent, who had been posing as Jonathan's wife, walks away into the night. Years later, a victim of the fraud is hired to investigate a strange occurrence: a woman has seemingly vanished from the deck of a container ship between ports of call. In this captivating story of crisis and survival, Emily St. John Mandel takes readers through often hidden landscapes: campgrounds for the near-homeless, underground electronica clubs, service in luxury hotels, and life in a federal prison. Rife with unexpected beauty, The Glass Hotel is a captivating portrait of greed and guilt, love and delusion, ghosts and unintended consequences, and the infinite ways we search for meaning in our lives. Compulsively readable. -- Chicago Review of Books
