Book DescriptionPeppered with snapshots of Germaine Greer, Roger Deakin, Lorna Sage, Elspeth Barker, Angus Wilson, Christopher Bigsby et al., THE GLASS MOTHER illuminates the literary life of the university that gave birth to the world's first creative writing course and famously Ian McEwen, Kazuo Ishiguro and WG Sebald among many others. Working at the University of East Anglia alongside Malcolm Bradbury and Lorna Sage, Rosie Jackson, in her twenties, was racing towards the top of the academic ladder. But success, she discovered, came at too great a cost: estrangement from her son. THE GLASS MOTHER is also an intimate account of soul-searching and survival which takes us into the world of the revered Indian spiritual master Meher Baba. THE GLASS MOTHER is a deeply personal, fearlessly honest memoir which defies intellectual fashion and questions our glittering aspirations.
Editorial ReviewRich, brave, engaging, a far-reaching and thought-provoking memoir. Jane Rusbridge, THE DEVIL'S MUSIC; Rosie Jackson is a fine, fine, writer and I feel this book is very significant. I hope her great heart and mind touch thousands, and that you allow her hard-fouhgt wings to lift you nearer to the sun. Daniel Ladinsky, HAFIZ: The Gift; Intense recall of a life passionately lived. With vivid dialogue and pointed humour, Rosie Jackson's moving and engrossing memoir explores the divisions in her experience, tracks the relationship with the son from whom she was parted, and gives a telling critique of academia. She reaches at last a generous understanding of her own difficult childhood and the discovering of a larger life through devotion; Dame Gillian Beer, VIRGINIA WOOLF The Common Ground
