Praise from Elizabeth Hand / by Robert Levy

"Robert Levy's transcendent first novel balances on the knife-edge between psychological horror and mainstream thriller — a beautifully written book that propels readers into a deeply unsettling and moving journey through the uncanny, haunted byways of Nova Scotia and Celtic myth, and the even deeper mysteries of human loss and enduring love.  Levy's work deserves a place beside that of Peter Straub, Graham Joyce, and Mark Z. Danielewski: The Glittering World is one of the strongest literary debuts of recent years."   – Elizabeth Hand, author of Available Dark and Generation Loss   So, yeah on the heels of Laird Barron's kind words, I am pretty much overwhelmed. Humbled by the praise, and amazed by the dead-on description of what I was trying to do with the book, what I always wanted it to be. There's nothing else to say.
