Peter Redgrove & Penelope Shuttle - The Glass Cottage


Peter Redgrove & Penelope Shuttle - The Glass Cottage

Paperback, 141pp, 8.5x5.5ins

Introduced by Penelope Shuttle. Published by Stride, distributed worldwide by Shearsman Books. 

A mysterious murder is commited aboard a luxury liner; suspicion of guilt spreads among the passengers; a gold watch is found ticking away inside the death-wound; the lives of those involved are changed by their closeness to a violent death, even after the apparent murderer has been discovered.

The Glass Cottage is an unusual mystery story that takes the reader into strange byways of emotion, and introduces them to many odd and memorable characters — the mad professor, the widow who talks with Goddess, the perverted ship's doctor, the poet interested in menstruation, the actor, the lover, the immensely freckled psychologist, the ship's spirit, the murdered girl and, not least, the great liner itself, the S.S. Messenger.
