25 years on, I've finally read Walking on Glass and found it actually very good indeed; people may complain about its lack of a linear narrative, but here we get three; Interleaved, intersecting and ultimately connected in as pleasingly ambiguous and open-ended a way as anyone could wish. A narrative structure that Trish Sullivan has used in several of her books (also to very fine results), allowing me to make here a suitably arbitrary connection to mention that she is giving away a copy of her latest novel, Lightborn to a randomly chosen commenter to this post. So get yourself there and post a comment; meet her half way, you might just win the draw.
Now to make a start on Ilario; I may be some time.
