Mandel's book is like the glass in her title: her language glitters yet also offers clarity and reflection, and her characters are like broken shards, mesmerizing in one light, and dangerously ordinary in another. Combining the humanity and structure of Station Eleven with the brutal realism of her earlier works, The Glass Hotel is an exceptional novel.
