Reviews

  • A novel that pierces the heart of evil... Consume it at night. Turn out the lights and watch the walls glow

    Scotsman
  • Baffling, haunting, terrifying, moving, and compulsively readable

    Daily Telegraph
  • In the end we are left with the resonance of a book whose centre is nowhere but whose circumference is extraordinarily large

    Financial Times
  • Nobody does eerie quite like John Burnside... exquisite and haunting..... the violence in Glister is shot through with an awful grace...As with all of Burnside's work - poetry, novels and memoir - there is a vision of something inexplicable at the heart of things. I doubt I will read a more unsettling and memorable book this year

    Scotland on Sunday
  • Darkly compelling murder mystery., the novel is also a densely layered engagement with questions of politics, spirituality, environmentalism and meta fiction. It is an incredible book; its echoes sound long after the end has been reached

    Big Issue
