Alanhk | 44 comments Description says "Was the 1963 Harper Prize-winning novel. It was the basis for the excellent multi-Oscar nominated film featuring Steve McQueen, Richard Attenborough, Richard Crenna & Candice Bergen in her 2nd film. Based on the author's own experiences."

All of this is untrue, that actually refers to "The Sand Pebbles" by by Richard McKenna. (see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060934/ for the film)

And "The Glass Cage" is listed as wining the Harper Prize in 1966, according to https://www.goodreads.com/award/show/..., but I can't find any other source to corroborate. I think that's fake too.
I found this page http://www.abebooks.com/book-search/i... where both books are listed under the same ISBN, probably someone copied and pasted from there.
