Working at the University of East Anglia alongside Malcolm Bradbury and Lorna Sage, Rosie Jackson, in her twenties, was racing towards the top of the academic ladder. But success, she discovered, came at too great a cost.
Turning her back on a life in which she’d fervently believed, she embarked on a difficult search for love and healing, most importantly with the son she left behind; a quest that was to carry her across the world towards new wisdom and understanding.
The Glass Mother is Rosie Jackson’s intimate account of soul-searching and survival: a deeply personal, fearlessly honest story which defies intellectual fashion and questions our glittering aspirations.
“Intense recall of a life passionately lived,” Dame Gillian Beer.
