The Glamour House

Take glamour, Mrs. Stein. It, too, is an illusion, true. Yet it has power. It can’t be grasped, held. Yet it can protect you. It can’t be reached. Yet it can take you somewhere else.

Four women, one man

It is 1947. In the glamorous world of Trudi Stein’s dress shop on Manhattan’s Upper East side, everything is cloaked in silence – until the arrival of an enigmatic new salesgirl, Esther, a young immigrant from Germany, whose very presence fills the icy atmosphere with warmth and life. What ensues is a mysterious, obsessive relationship that ends in revelation.
