This novel was shortlisted for the Booker and is a great read if you like history, family stories and architecture/design. It tells the the story of a Czech family and follows the history of the house they designed and built, following their escape from Czechoslovakia during nazi occupation. This feels epic, as the story sweeps through the decades, with great characters and sense of place - you will want to visit the real Glass House in Brno in Czech republic.
