the glass room by Simon Mawer

the glass roomyet another from this years booker shortlist ,this actually the first i read .the book is mainly set in the glass room a modernist house in the czech republic .i felt this work better as using a building as the main plotline for a book than alaa al awany the yacobian building . the story covers the peroid from the 30’s to modern day most of the action happening before and during the second world war .Maybe using the glass room is a good way at putting a spot light on the peroid and visualizing one small part of a large story like a magnifing glass .this was mawers eigth novel and shows a writer that is slowly growing in to a great writer
