Three Junes Cover Image
$16.00
ISBN: 9780385721424
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Anchor - April 22nd, 2003

This is one of my favorite books, re-read many times since 2002! A complex, sweeping family saga that takes you from Scotland, to Greece, Greenwich Village, the Hamptons... And I can definately identify with aspects  of the character of Fenno, the eldest; a wry, introspective gay man & bookseller. "In prose rich with compassion and wit, Three Junes paints a haunting portrait of love’s redemptive powers."  This is definately a book you should read, and one that you will fall in love with! - Jeff, Bookseller

From Publishers Weekly

"The artful construction of this seductive novel and the mature, compassionate wisdom permeating it would be impressive for a seasoned writer, but it's all the more remarkable in a debut. This narrative of the McLeod family during three vital summers is rich with implications about the bonds and stresses of kin and friendship, the ache of loneliness and the cautious tendrils of renewal blossoming in unexpected ways. Glass depicts the mysterious twists of fate and cosmic (but unobtrusive) coincidences that bring people together, and the self-doubts and lack of communication that can keep them apart, in three fluidly connected sections in which characters interact over a decade. These people are entirely at home in their beautifully detailed settings Greece, rural Scotland, Greenwich Village and the Hamptons and are fully dimensional in their moments of both frailty and grace. Paul McLeod, the reticent Scots widower introduced in the first section, is the father of Fenno, the central character of the middle section, who is a reserved, self-protective gay bookstore owner in Manhattan; both have dealings with the third section's searching young artist, Fern Olitsky, whose guilt in the wake of her husband's death leaves her longing for and fearful of beginning anew. Other characters are memorably individualistic: an acerbic music critic dying of AIDS, Fenno's emotionally elusive mother, his sibling twins and their wives, and his insouciant lover among them. In this dazzling portrait of family life, Glass establishes her literary credentials with ingenuity and panache. "

Published: Grove Press - February 11th, 2020

Among my favorite books, Shuggie Bain is a book you'll never forget! Brilliant prose, so well detailed that you feel as if you're right there with Shuggie and his mother, Agnes. This is one of my top recommendations at East End Books Ptown. - Jeff, Bookseller

"A heartbreaking story of addiction, sexuality, and love, Shuggie Bain is an epic portrayal of a working-class family that is rarely seen in fiction. Recalling the work of Édouard Louis, Alan Hollinghurst, Frank McCourt, and Hanya Yanagihara, it is a blistering debut by a brilliant novelist who has a powerful and important story to tell."
