He soon discovers, however, that everything he thought he knew about himself is a carefully orchestrated lie. Though he had no recollection of the event, as a young boy Blue and another child went missing for weeks in the idyllic, mysterious woods of Starling Cove. Soon thereafter, his mother suddenly fled with him to America, their homeland left behind. But then Blue begins to remember.

All four will face their troubled pasts, their most private demons, and a mysterious race of beings that inhabits the land, spoken of by the locals only as the Other Kind...

"The Glittering World is that rare thing: A literary novel that reads like a thriller. A fairy tale for the modern era." -- Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year "The Glittering World is that rare and wonderful kind of book that takes something old and makes it new again. Like those who disappear into the woods in this novel, once you step into these lush and mysterious pages, be prepared to return to your own world altered." -- Christopher Barzak, author of One for Sorrow "Imagine True Blood crossed with Margaret Atwood. As seductive, fantastical, and menacing as any modern supernatural classic." -- Scott Cheshire, author of High as the Horses' Bridles "Robert Levy's transcendent first novel balances on the knife-edge between psychological horror and mainstream thriller - [it] deserves a place beside that of Peter Straub, Graham Joyce, and Mark. Z. Danielewski." -- Elizabeth Hand, author of Generation Loss "Robert Levy spins a dark and mythic tale. Exquisitely allegorical, this novel seethes with menace, romance, and mystery. The Glittering World is a powerful debut." -- Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All "Frightening and supernatural . . . the imaginative plot is first rate." * Suspense Magazine * "Emotionally complex... Levy's atmospherics are all encompassing, and fantastic. A darkly romantic, lovely, sometimes horrifying, and yes, glittering read." * My Bookish Ways * "Levy's first novel is confident, brave, and beautiful in every way, with resonant warmth and an understanding of the fundamentally singular human experience." * Shelf Awareness * "The Glittering World is a stunning phantasmagoria drawn from the world just beneath the surface, aswarm with great and memorable characters and a plot that twists and turns as it hurtles forward. A grand debut. One taste, and you'll be addicted." -- Keith Donohue, author of The Stolen Child "Fast paced, yet it also succeeds as a reflective tale of self-discovery...Well crafted, atmospheric, and whimsical, this will attract readers who enjoy Neil Gaiman and Mark Z. Danielewski." * Library Journal * "A luscious, compelling tangle of a thriller. The Glittering World maps the realms of friendship and identity, the mythic and the contemporary. I loved it." -- Kelly Link, author of Magic for Beginners "As imaginative and frightening as a whole gallery of surrealist paintings come luridly to life." -- John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
