Emily St. John Mandel - The Glass Hotel

Upcoming Event
Friday, March 27, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As she did with a deadly global flu pandemic in her unforgettable Station Eleven—a post-apocalyptic tour de force that thrilled critics and readers alike, and appeared on nearly every best-of-the-year list—Mandel in her new novel uses a huge Ponzi scheme to explore both the basic elements of civilization and the more intimate connections between individuals. Centering on the five-star Hotel Caiette and its owner—a high finance, Bernie Madoff-esque figure—the bartender he’s involved with, a shipping executive, and others, the narrative spirals out from British Columbia to Manhattan to a container ship off the coast of Mauritania, tracing an intricate web of white collar crime, deception, and ghosts.
