Richard Grey wakes up in a hospital with amnesia after a terrorist bombing. His memories gradually start to return, but what he remembers doesn’t always seem to coincide with what really happened. And then there is Susan Kewley, an enigmatic young woman whom Richard does not remember but who claims to have been his lover. With her help, Richard will discover the strange and terrible world of the glamour and a remarkable power both of them may possess . . .
From the master of mind-bending literary fiction, Christopher Priest (The Affirmation, The Prestige), The Glamour (1984) is both a gripping, page-turning novel of suspense and an intricate puzzle whose construction is so clever that readers will want to read the novel a second time to see how exactly it was done.
