About the Series: Glass
Menashe has been acting as a counselor to similarly afflicted clients who agree to his unorthodox brand of pseudo-therapy. He decides to open up a "glass museum"—an underground safe place where clients can vent their anguish by destroying rooms filled with clear glass art. The museum brings hope to those who have not responded to traditional therapy, but also gives Menashe a sense of purpose he desperately needs.

Set in Cleveland in the late 1980s, Glass tests traditional ideas of interpersonal responsibility and what it means to struggle with mental illness.


A decade later, Menashe's client Murray Henderson is yearning for direction. He’s treading water in Cleveland, failing in his career and relationships. When an opportunity calls him to NYC, Murray finally sees a path out of his relentless grief. But as he navigates a hopeful new life, he soon falls back into old patterns of self-loathing and violence. With his life shattering around him, Murray realizes he must confront his most devastating secret and the intertwined fear and anger haunting him.

Tempered, the sequel to Glass, explores the deadly pull of anger and how we are shaped by—and shape—the ones we love.
