Book Launch: Emily St. John Mandel presents The Glass Hotel
In conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald
Emily St. John Mandel, the award-winning author of Station Eleven, returns (virtually!) to Greenlight to launch her latest novel, The Glass Hotel. Set at the glittering intersection of two seemingly disparate events—a massive Ponzi scheme collapse and the mysterious disappearance of a woman from a ship at sea—this exhilarating story of crisis and survival weaves its characters lives together in unexpected and chilling ways. Mandel takes readers through often hidden landscapes: campgrounds for the near-homeless, underground electronica clubs, the business of international shipping, 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. Joining Mandel (via Zoom) in conversation for this highly anticipated launch is author and founder of BuzzFeed Books Isaac Fitzgerald.
