Description

High on a Czechoslovak hill, the Landauer House shines as a wonder of steel and glass. This radiant 1930s house, with its unique Glass Room, quickly tarnishes as the storm clouds of WW2 gather. The house passes from hand to hand, from Czech to Russian, and bears witness to both the best and the worst of the history of Eastern Europe.

Professional reviews

"'Warm, intelligent, light-giving... A masterpiece of its kind.' JAMES NAUGHTIE 'The Glass Room is much, much more than a historical novel - it's a brilliantly plotted, beautifully told story about love, cruelty, betrayal, survival and, above all, the complexity and power of sex. Mays's cool, understated reading is perfectly pitched.' SUE ARNOLD, THE GUARDIAN"
