The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

The Glass Hotel is a 2020 novel by Emily St. John Mandel.

This is literature.   The author is a young, Canadian from Comox, British Columbia.

I listened to it while cycling near Comox.

It follows the aftermath of a disturbing graffiti incident at a hotel on Vancouver Island and the collapse of an international Ponzi scheme.

The Atlantic said:

“The structure is virtuosic, as the fragments of the story coalesce by the end of the narrative into a richly satisfying shape. There are wonderful moments of lyricism.”

The character of Vincent is fascinating.  I want to know more about her.

I really liked her previous book too – Station Eleven.
