UNSOLVED: One specific book > about a family who is falling apart. There is a lot of imagery of the house falling apart that represents the falling apart of the family. Not Fall of the House of Usher, but a classic.

Victoria | 3 comments So my brother asked about this book he remembers. It is about a family who is falling apart. There is a lot of imagery of the house falling apart that represents the falling apart of the family. It is not Fall of the House of Usher by Poe. He also said it was a classic. I seem to remember a book like this but the house was made of glass. But I am not sure. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! :)

Yefim (fgalkin) | 11 comments Was it The Gormenghast Novels, by any chance?

Juels | 2424 comments Does he remember anything about the family members? Any idea where or when it was set?

Perhaps Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco? Not sure it'd be considered a classic and house isn't made of glass but thought I'd throw it out there.

Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco for Ana's suggestion.
