Emily St. John Mandel
Emily St. John Mandel is a Canadian novelist, best known for the award winning Station Eleven. Mandel studied contemporary dance at The School of Toronto Dance Centre and the nature of performance was a key strand of her 2014 novel Station Eleven, a post-apocalyptic dystopia in which a band of travelling Shakespearean actors play a key part. Station Eleven was nominated for the National Book Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the Women’s Prize for Fiction, winning the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction. Mandel’s other novels are less explicitly fantastical, taking in elements of crime fiction and the mystery novel. Her latest novel, The Glass Hotel, will be published in April 2020.
Six years after the ground-breaking dystopia Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel returns with a kaleidoscopic mystery rich in ineffable magic and good old fashioned storytelling. Deftly weaving together the stories of a bartender, a hotel owner and a shipping agent into a gripping, evocative novel of panoramic sweep and nuanced characterisation, The Glass Hotel is a resounding success on every level.
