Product Details


“A mixture of speed, filigreed narration and Pynchon-esque social satire. . . . Glow burns with inventive energy.”  —San Francisco Chronicle
  ” Virtuosic. . . . Reads at a breakneck pace of a who-done-it potboiler.” –The Los Angeles Times
  “A pulpy whodunit, but it develops into something much weirder [that] by the end you might feel as if your brain had been CrossFit training.” —Entertainment Weekly
“Antic [and] madly engaging. . . . [Beauman] has a boundless ability to entertain.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A novel that wakes us up . . . enchants readers with an intricate plot, dazzles with distinct characters [and] simply thrills with a unique, distinctive writing style.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazett

“Beauman’s zest for everyday comedy and a well-turned sentence is as evident as ever from the first scene.” —The Washington Post

“A raucous, seriocomic mash-up of mystery and noir. . . . This smart and streetwise novel will bring a glow to the reader as well.” —Library Journal

 “Glow does not glow—it dazzles.” —The Independent, UK

 “We are in the presence of a genuine talent here. . . . Beauman’s great originality and skill [and] intelligent aesthetic often provide pure revitalizing reading pleasure; he is playful, arresting, unnerving, opulent, rude and—above all, deliciously, startlingly, exuberantly fresh.” —The Guardian, UK
