Witz, October 23, 2014 (view all comments by Witz)
Fine read with three overlapping stories that focus on two generations of one family over a stretch of time, always in June. I found some of the scenes set in the early stories to be highly cinematic and there is much drama revealed in the marriage of the parents of the son and daughter who figure in the later stories. The latter stories also include the impact of a friend's AIDS illness on a member of the family.

I loved reading this book, and the characters have stayed in my mind years after finishing the book. I have loved both this and The Whole World Over. Definitely in my top 5 list of all the books I've read.

Lara Gardner, January 11, 2010 (view all comments by Lara Gardner)
This is one of my all time favorite books. I loved it so much, I decided if I ever had a son, I would name him Fenno. The characters are rich and complex. The stories of their lives intertwine so believably and minutely, you are left with a feeling that you have known actual people when you have finished reading, and miss them when they are gone. A true masterpiece.

"Review" by , "Sophisticated . . . Engrossing . . . Catches the surprising twists and turns in family relationships, amid love, loss, hope and regret."
"Review" by , "Readers may be reminded of Evelyn Waugh and, especially, Angus Wilson by the rich characterizations and narrative sweep that grace this fine debut....Glass makes it all work, though the parts are not uniformly credible or compelling. Nevertheless, a rather formidable debut."
"Review" by , "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....In this dazzling portrait of family life, Glass establishes her literary credentials with ingenuity and panache."
"Review" by , "Fiercely realized. . .luxuriant in its emotional comprehension and the idea, or promise, that anything might happen." Boston Globe

"Review" by , "Many undercurrents and emotions run through this mesmerizing novel....Brimming with a marvelous cast of intricate characters set in an assortment of scintillating backdrops, Glass's philosophically introspective novel is highly intelligent and well written."
"Review" by , "[A] strong and memorable debut novel....Alternately joyful and sad, this exploration of modern relationships and the families people both inherit or create for themselves is highly recommended for all fiction collections."
"Review" by , "A warm, wise debut....Three Junes marks a blessed event for readers of literary fiction everywhere."
"Review" by , "This first novel treats family ties, erotic longing, small children and prolonged deaths from AIDS and cancer with a subtlety that grows from scrupulous unsentimentality."
"Review" by , "Three Junes brilliantly rescues, then refurbishes, the traditional plot-driven novel. . . Glass has written a generous book about family expectations — but also about happiness."
"Review" by , "Formidable. . . The traditional novel of social relations is very much alive in Three Junes. Virginia Woolf and Elizabeth Bowen, among other exemplars, would surely approve."
