The precisions of science, the wild variance of lust, the catharsis of confession and the fear of failure - these are things that happen in the Glass Room. High on a Czechoslovak hill, the Landauer House shines as a wonder of steel and glass and onyx built specially for newlyweds Viktor and Liesel Landauer, a Jew married to a gentile. But the radiant honesty of 1930 that the house, with its unique Glass Room, seems to engender quickly tarnishes as the storm clouds of WW2 gather, and eventually the family must flee, accompanied by Viktor's lover and her child. But the house's story is far from over, and as it passes from hand to hand, from Czech to Russian, both the best and the worst of the history of Eastern Europe becomes somehow embodied and perhaps emboldened within the beautiful and austere surfaces and planes so carefully designed, until events become full-circle.Hide synopsis

Do not oick up this book unless you are prepared to put aside all calls for help and all required duties. Once you start reading you will be pulled into a world of apprehension, which begins in 1929 when the Bauhaus structure is planned and built by a Jewish family in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Your antennae will be immediately alerted to the rise of Nazism with its attendant consequences for the Landauer family. Characterization includes the house as well as the family, as the house is always sensitive to its use and its occupants. A broad picture of wartime is delineated. but the focus always narrows to the plight of the house.
