“The most unexpected second book by a writer of note to appear in engrossing story of brotherly division.”—John Freeman, Boston Globe

The much-anticipated debut novel from National Book Award “5 under 35” author Josh Weil, whom Colum McCann lauded as one of “the most gifted writers of his generation,” The Great Glass Sea is an epic tale of brotherly love, swathed in all the magic of Russian folklore and set against the backdrop of an all-too-real alternate present. This is an ambitious novel of love, loss, and light, and a spellbinding vision of an alternative Russia as stirring as it is profound.

“Moving and sensitive…evokes the mythic feel of a contemporary classic. There's pathos and tension…breathtaking brilliance. Weil's greatest gift to the reader: a deep understanding of family, personal loss and the abiding love between siblings.”—Los Angeles Times
