The universe is a glitterball I hold in the palm of my hand.Once the golden boy of the English literary scene, now a clinically depressed writer of pulp crime fiction, Ash Winters has given up on love, hope, happiness, and--most of all--himself. He lives his life between the cycles of his illness, haunted by the ghosts of other people's expectations.Then a chance encounter at a stag party throws him into the arms of Essex boy Darian Taylor, an aspiring model who lives in a world of hair gel, fake tans, and fashion shows. By his own admission, Darian isn't the crispest lettuce in the fridge, but he cooks a mean cottage pie and makes Ash laugh, reminding him of what it's like to step beyond the boundaries of anxiety.But Ash has been living in his own shadow for so long that he can't see past the glitter to the light. Can a man who doesn't trust himself ever trust in happiness? And how can a man who doesn't believe in happiness ever fight for his own?

Opinion

From Library Staff

The main character in Glitterland is complicated, hard to like, and makes decisions that will break your heart. But at the end of the day, this is a story of how people who struggle with their mental health deserve love, too.

A compassionate and complicated story of how living with bipolar disorder affects your life and relationships. Alexis Hall has become a favorite author of mine recently - he writes realistic characters that aren't always the nicest or greatest, but are still deserving of love and affection in the end. Glitterland is one of his BEST.
