Publisher's Summary

Set in pre-World War I Europe, The World Is Made of Glass is a powerful novel of love, sexual obsession, murder and guilt.

A cryptic and mysterious case history appears in the autobiography of pioneering Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung: ‘A lady came to my office. She refused to give her name. What she had to communicate to me was a confession. Some 20 years ago, she had committed a murder.’

Jung’s encounter with the woman had an explosive effect on him and brought him very close to total breakdown. Morris West re-creates this episode in a gripping blend of truth and dramatic speculation.

Set in pre-World War I Europe, The World Is Made of Glass is a powerful novel of love, sexual obsession, murder and guilt. It has been called Morris West’s finest creation of the imagination.

Critic Reviews

'An audacious and wonderful novel.' (The Mail on Sunday)

"The World Is Made of Glass may well be the standard against which all Morris West's previous works will be judged." (New York Times Book Review)

Review

A little confusing at first so I had to go back and listen to the beginning a few times to figure out what was going on. Eventually, character names began to sink in. Excellent character development and unfolding. Excellent theme brought excellently to a close. Excellent in every way. A lot of excellences in this review.
