Map of Glass
Jane Urquhart
Laced with fanciful images, like a hotel entirely and literally lost to the sands of time, a glass ballroom floor, three-dimensional maps made of fabric and bits of nature, and a dead man encased in ice floating down a river, Map of Glass is certainly Jane Urquhart's finest book, and there's a backlist of good books from which to choose. Though sometimes her main character seems somewhat too incapable of some of the things she does, Urquhart otherwise builds a convincing world and peoples it with compelling characters.
