Peppered with snapshots of Germaine Greer, Roger Deakin, Lorna Sage, Elspeth Barker, Angus Wilson, Christopher Bigsby et al., THE GLASS MOTHER illuminates the literary life of the university that gave birth to the world's first creative writing course and famously Ian McEwen, Kazuo Ishiguro and WG Sebald among many others. Working at the University of East Anglia alongside Malcolm Bradbury and Lorna Sage, Rosie Jackson, in her twenties, was racing towards the top of the academic ladder. But success, she discovered, came at too great a cost: estrangement from her son. THE GLASS MOTHER is also an intimate account of soul-searching and survival which takes us into the world of the revered Indian spiritual master Meher Baba. THE GLASS MOTHER is a deeply personal, fearlessly honest memoir which defies intellectual fashion and questions our glittering aspirations.
