Praise from Christopher Barzak / by Robert Levy

Robert Levy’s The Glittering World is that rare and wonderful kind of book that takes something old and makes it new again. Like those who disappear into the woods in this novel, once you step into these lush and mysterious pages, be prepared to return to your own world altered.

— Christopher Barzak, author of One for Sorrow

The Talented Mister Barzak, whose work I have long admired (his novels are revelatory, as is his recent short story collectionBefore and Afterlives), expertly hones in on the dark and contemporary fairy tale aspect of my book. In its own way, my novel is a postmodern retelling of Hansel and Gretel, and it took his kind words to make me remember why I decided to write it in the first place. Thanks, Chris!
