Map of Glass, A: Reviewed

Author:Jane Urquhart
Reading Level (Conceptual):Sophisticated readers
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Sophisticated readers
Year of publication:2006

Three plot arcs in which:
  • An autistic-spectrum woman carries on a lengthy affair with a geologist afflicted with Alzheimer's disease intersects with
  • a 19th century capitalist assault on a bog and
  • a 21st century romance
lead us to muse on the faultiness of memory and the ways in which artists, artisans, and denizens of the planet change the world by loving and hating and working and evoking and exploring it.

Or, can it be that by living in the world, we change it so radically that we can't accurately remember it?
