The Glass Blowers

‘A glass-blower, remember, breathes life into a vessel, giving it shape and form and  sometimes beauty; but he can, with that same breath, shatter and destroy it.’

Sophie Duval reveals to her long-lost nephew the tragic story of their family.

The world of the glass-blowers has its own traditions, its own language — and its own  rules. ‘If you marry into glass,’ Pierre Labbé warns his daughter, ‘you will say goodbye to  everything familiar, and enter a closed world.’ But crashing into this world comes the  violence and terror of the French Revolution, against which the family struggles to survive.

The Glass Blowers is a remarkable achievement — an imaginative and exciting reworking of du Maurier’s own family history.
