9780099460299: Three Junes

In this captivating debut novel, Julia Glass depicts the life and loves of the McLeod family during three crucial summers spanning a decade. Paul McLeod, patriarch of a Scottish family and a retired newspaper editor and proprietor, is on a package tour of Greece after the death of his wife. The story of his departure from the family home in Scotland and late gesture towards some sort of freedom gives way to his eldest son's life (Fenno). Fenno protects his heart by putting himself under emotional quarantine throughout his life as a young gay man in Manhattan. When he returns home for his father's funeral, this emotional isolation cannot be sustained when he is confronted by a choice that puts him at the centre of his family and its future. Three Junes is a novel about how we live and how family ties (those that we make as well as those that we are born into) can offer redemption and joy.

Review:

"Like Michael Cunningham's The Hours, which won the Pulitzer, Three Junes won its own prize (National Book Award) and deserves it-a highly accomplished and sensitive novel, all the more remarkable for being Julia Glass's first." ( The Sunday Telegraph)

"Free of gimmickry, Three Junes brilliantly rescues, then refurbishes, the traditional plot-driven novel." ( The New York Times)

"Three Junes almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains. Glass's ability-would be marvellous in any novelist. In a first-time novelist, it's extraordinary." (Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours.)

Book Description:

'Threatens to burst with all the life it contains.' Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
