SIMON & SCHUSTER
Isabel Greenberg is perfectly suited to write about writing, and the mastery of her storytelling is fully realised in Glass Town. An exquisitely crafted weaving of the real and imagined lives of the Brontës, Greenberg digs deep into Brontë juvenilia to fully submerge the reader in the chaotic and confusing world of Glass Town. Following the siblings - with a focus on Charlotte - from childhood to adulthood, Greenberg perfectly depicts the impact what started as a childhood pastime has across their whole lives. Not to mention that Glass Town is stunning to look at, and each page is full of wonder. Greenberg has managed to create a book that is full of the fantastical, yet remains a faithful and personal exploration of one of literature’s most iconic families.
