A blazing novel about identity, love, kindness, loss and survival
in an uncertain world. Let Us Be True will stay with me for a long
time -- Rachel Joyce
Praise for Glass: 'Charming and funny ... there's enough here to show you the author has plenty more to offer and that, like his hero, he definitely has his heart in the right place. * Daily Mail *
Christofi's writing really does gleam with wit, inventiveness and an offbeat charm -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
[An] impressive, tightly paced coming-of-age story ... a multi-layered story that follows one man's refracted path through life's prism * Financial Times *
