The Glow: 'Jane Austen on steroids' (Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours)

Jessie Gaynor

3 Reviews

Rated 0

c 2010 to c 2020, Of specific Gay & Lesbian interest, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Digital lifestyle, Social networking, Cosmetics, hair & beauty

A desperate young publicist tries to save her career by turning a grungy retreat centre and its charismatic leader into the hot new self-care brand in this darkly comedic, razor-sharp send-up of the wellness industry. For fans of Halle Butler's THE NEW ME, Abigail Bergstrom's WHAT A SHAME and Liane Moriaty's NINE PERFECT STRANGERS

Inner peace
Glowing skin
The perfect body
How far would you go?

Jane Dorner has two modes:

PR Jane is twenty-five, breezy, clever in a non-threatening way and eager to sell you a feminist vibrator.

Actual Jane is twenty-nine, drifting through mediocre workdays and lackluster dates while paralysed by her crushing mountain of overdue bills.

Enter the impossibly gorgeous Cass, whom Jane discovers scrolling through Instagram - proprietor of a 'wellness retreat' based out of a ramshackle country house that may or may not be giving off cult vibes. Suddenly Jane realizes she might have found the one ladder she can climb.
But inner peace, shiny hair and glowing skin always comes at a price . . .

  • Jessie Gaynor's wildly funny, laser-eyed novel is Jane Austen on steroids. It's that sharp, that wicked, that laceratingly true

  • The first truly dead-on satire of wellness culture. With terrifying wit, Jessie Gaynor shreds the overrated virtues of prosperity and healthy moisture barriers, and extols the underrated virtues of irony and sanity
