Little, Brown Book Group: ** 'THE GLASS ROOM is a fiction of many remarkable qualities ... Mawer's control of his themes of language, desire, memory and the power of place is extraordinary - as haunting and mysterious as the effect of sunlight on the wall of golden onyx that survives all the convulsions by which his characters are engulfed' Jane Shilling, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH ** '[THE GLASS ROOM'S] poetic success is to remind us of two great gilt-edged ironies: that whatever is held to be the height of modernity is already en route to the museum, and that even "cold" art is the embodiment of its maker's passion - one that can prove contagious' Richard T Kelly, FINANCIAL TIMES ** 'Mawer creates a passionately detailed portrait of individuals struggling to snatch order and happiness from frightening, irrational times ... THE GLASS ROOM achieves a rare feat of being truly enjoyable to read.' Rachel Aspden, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH ** 'Love triangles litter Mawer's story. They bear witness to his great talent for grasping the non-linear nature of desire.' Philip Oltermann, THE TIMES ** 'Exciting, profoundly affecting and altogether wonderful' DAILY MAIL 'A novel of remarkable qualities' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Compelling. A wholly enjoyable and moving read' INDEPENDENT 'Truly enjoyable to read' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Transcends mere cleverness to become profound' GUARDIAN 'Exciting, profound and altogether wonderful' DAILY MAIL 'Definitely Booker-ish' SPECTATOR
