A darkly shimmering novel of a nurse on the edge of burnout, by "an immensely talented young writer . . . Her fearlessness renews one''s faith in the power of literature" (George Saunders).

Laura is a nurse in a pediatric unit. On long, quiet shifts, she and her colleagues, clad in their different shades of blue, care for sick babies, handling their exquisitely fragile bodies and carefully calibrating the mysterious machines that keep them alive.

Laura may be burnt out. Her hands have been raw from washing as long as she can remember. When she sleeps, she dreams of water; when she wakes, she finds herself lying next to a man who doesn''t love her anymore. And there is a strange figure dancing in the corner of her vision, always just beyond her reach.

Dark yet luminous, sensual yet chilling, written with a visceral rhythm and laced with dread, Rest and Be Thankful is an unforgettable novel that confirms Emma Glass as a visionary new voice.

Emma Glass is a nurse at Evelina London Children''s Hospital. Her debut novel, Peach, has been translated into seven languages and was longlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. @Emmas_Window
