The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

From the award-winning author of Station Eleven, an exhilarating novel set at the glittering intersection of two seemingly disparate events…

Vincent is the beautiful bartender at the Hotel Caiette, a five-star glass-and-cedar palace on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island.  New York financier Jonathan Alkaitis owns the hotel.  When he passes Vincent his card with a tip, it’s the beginning of their life together.  That same day, a hooded figure scrawls a note on the windowed wall of the hotel: ’Why don’t you swallow broken glass.’  Leon Prevant, a shipping executive for a company called Neptune-Avramidis, sees the note from the hotel bar and is shaken to his core.  Thirteen years later Vincent mysteriously disappears from the deck of a Neptune-Avramidis ship.

Weaving together the lives of these characters, Emily St. John Mandel’s The Glass Hotel moves between the ship, the towers of Manhattan, and the wilderness of remote British Columbia, painting a breathtaking picture of greed and guilt, fantasy and delusion, art and the ghosts of our pasts.

Peer & Press Reviews

With its shattered narrative, the joys of The Glass Hotel are participatory: piecing together the connections and intersections of Mandel’s human cartography, a treasure map ripped to pieces.

Beejay Silcox, Guardian

Throughout the book people see ghosts and visions, but Mandel never indulges fully in the supernatural; instead, it’s a unique rumination on guilt, grief and regret.

Hattie Crisell, Times

No one comes through unscathed and the comeuppances are unfairly and unevenly handed out…  It’s chilling stuff.  But the writer is teasing us too – one whodunnit is solved, another is revealed as no crime at all.

Miranda Green, Financial Times
