Glass Town

Glass Town


The entrancing story of the Brontë sisters' childhood imaginary world, from the New York Times bestselling graphic novelist.

Four children: Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne have invented a world so real and vivid that they can step right into it. But can reality be enough, when fiction is so enticing? And what happens to an imaginary world when its creators grow up?

Plots are spiralling, characters are getting wildly out of hand, and a great deal of ink is being spilt...

Welcome to Glass Town.


  • A wild journey: an odysseyA feat of narrative concision that is by turns dreamy, and gritty. If it’s a fantastic comic – and I think that it is – then it’s also one of the best books about the Brontës’ juvenilia ever written.
