"Rudy is a successful architect, but life is not as happy as it should be. His work leaves him artistically frustrated, his wife and two young daughters have moved out of the house he designed for them, and his pushy young associate is vying for design supremacy. When a Vespa accident puts him into hospital and forces him to recuperate at home, he looks in danger of losing everything, but it is then that his repressed artistic yearnings start to make their presence felt, not just in the glass creations he begins to craft, but also in his strange, vivid dreams"--Back cover.

I started reading this novel but felt ambiguous toward it at first- didn't know if I was enjoying it or not. The main character is rather unlikeable but in spite of that I continued and got drawn into his world and the myriad of ways it was unravelling- largely a result of his own behaviour and attitude. When I finished I realised I had enjoyed the quiet almost understated style in which it was written that drew me into the story.
