Now You See Me: A Novel

'“A beautiful bombshell of a story, a painful, gorgeous romance about self-preservation, trust and loss. Like love, it is glorious. And it will break your heart.” —The Independent   “Now You See Me boasts a protagonist so heartbreakingly well-realised that you are forced to live through her eyes, in her head, her heart, her skull. . . . If only all fiction made us worry and care so hard, posed us such dreadfully difficult questions.” —The Guardian   “A beautifully articulated and tender love story . . . It possesses an unsettling resonance.” —Daily Mail   “A strong and beguiling novel, Glaister’s steady, unobtrusive prose [builds] to reveal layer upon layer of long-buried tragedy.” —The Sunday Times   “imbued with Glaister’s trademark blend of everyday detail and fairy tale mystery, this is a page-turner.” —The Times (London)   “Glaister’s world is peopled with adolescents just beyond childhood, ripe for dark finding-out; misfits who have already found out the hard way and the old people whose histories have made them mad. . . . Glaister courts darkness in the way that some of her bolder characters flirt with sex.” —The Times Literary Supplement   “From the first page, we know we are in the grip of a writer who has got under the skin of despair with a perspective illuminated by subtlety. The result is a work so carefully controlled, its measure of pain so delicately calibrated, that it grows almost unbearably sad. There’s no way of forgetting this book, no pushing away its message.” —The Herald'
