Praise
"Glass makes it all work..., though the parts are not uniformly credible or compelling. Nevertheless, a rather formidable d?but."
"Glass...writes so well that what might seem like farce is rich, absorbing, and full of life."
From the Publisher
Annotation In Scotland, during the course of three summers in the 1980s and '90s, Paul MacLeod, his son Fenno, and a woman named Fern work out a complex chain of relationships. A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
First Line Paul chose Greece for its predictable whiteness: the blanching heat by day, the rush of stars at night, the glint of the lime-washed houses crowding its coast. Blinding, searing, somnolent, fossilized Greece.
Editors Note A luminous first novel, set in Greece, Scotland, Greenwich Village and Long Island, that traces the lives of a Scottish family over a decade as they confront the joys and longings, fulfillments and betrayals of love in all its guises.
Editors Note 3 The interconnected lives, loves, and relationships of different generations of the McLeod family are revealed over the course of three crucial summers, in a debut novel about love, death, and birth in a Scottish family. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.
Editors Note 4 An astonishing first novel that traces the lives of a Scottish family over a decade as they confront the joys and longings, fulfillments and betrayals of love in all its guises.In June of 1989 Paul McLeod, a newspaper publisher and recent widower, travels to Greece, where he falls for a young American artist and reflects on the complicated truth about his marriage. . ..Six years later, again in June, Paul?s death draws his three grown sons and their families back to their ancestral home. Fenno, the eldest, a wry, introspective gay man, narrates the events of this unforeseen reunion. Far from his straitlaced expatriate life as a bookseller in Greenwich Village, Fenno is stunned by a series of revelations that threaten his carefully crafted defenses. . .. Four years farther on, in yet another June, a chance meeting on the Long Island shore brings Fenno together with Fern Olitsky, the artist who once captivated his father. Now pregnant, Fern must weigh her guilt about the past against her wishes for the future and decide what family means to her. In prose rich with compassion and wit,Three Junes paints a haunting portrait of love?s redemptive powers.
