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
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
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.--Kelly Link, author of Magic for Beginners "Library Journal"

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 "Suspense Magazine"
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 "Suspense Magazine"
