More About Three Junes by Julia Glass
 
 
 
Overview
Three Junes is a triptych of the McLeod family during three crucial summers. In the first section we meet Paul, the patriarch, a newspaper publisher who is touring Greece after the death of his vivacious wife and becomes infatuated with a young American artist. In part two, we reexperience the world of the McLeods from the perspective of Fenno, Paul's eldest son: a lovable, slightly repressed gay man who owns a bookstore and whose comfortably escapist existence is shaken by an oddly magnanimous gift from a sharp-tongued, charismatic neighbor. That gift and the singular friendship and heartbreaking loss it engenders are but some of the forces that unexpectedly alter all these lives -- which re-collide years later, in part three, over a Long Island summer dinner table with a new generation on the way.

But no brief description can convey the details of place and person, the dazzling weave of past and present, of surprising revelations and slowly simmering developments, that evoke the completeness of life in Three Junes. It is a stunning debut by a master of the novel form.
