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.… (mer)

Three Junes av Julia Glass (2002)

  1. 01
    Sing Them Home av Stephanie Kallos (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Family interactions between fathers, mothers, and siblings -- living and dead, present and past -- are the focus of these sharply observed tales. Character-driven and lyrical, they share a thoughtful, bittersweet tone and a complex style perfect for their mature themes.… (mer)

    Divisadero : Annas bok av Michael Ondaatje (eveninglightwriter)
    eveninglightwriter: While Ondaatje is definitly more poetic in his descriptions, Julia Glass is just as enjoyable. I really felt myself swept away by both books. There seems to be a strong sense of place and time that both writers portray beautifully.

Disappointing. Almost gave up near the end. Give up on this author if this is her best ( )
  oldblack | Apr 22, 2020 |
I got through it but almost quit a couple of times, wondering why I was still reading. It wasn't bad, just.....boring. A family saga that starts in Scotland with three young brothers, the oldest of whom eventually moves to the US. As I sit here unable to succinctly state what the book is about, I'll quote from the back "A luminous first novel (2002), set in Greece, Scotland, Greenwich Village, and Long Island, that traces the members of a Scottish family as they confront the joys and longings, fulfillments and betrayals of love in all its guises." I guess.

The brother who moves to the US is gay and has a hard time settling in and find his way in NYC; the middle brother marries and becomes the dominant sibling, though has family angst in trying to have a family; the youngest brother marries, has 3 daughters and becomes a chef. The three personalities are well drawn but I still rushed through the book, looking for a reason to keep reading. I never did figure out what the 'three Junes' meant. ( )

What a good book. I was completely involved with the characters, each a unique person in a different time, but connected, and each so distinctly themselves, and so very different from me. They all three came alive, and only one really felt like someone I'd know. I liked that very much, and I was sad when the book ended. ( )

A book in three parts, of which the first is good, the second brilliant and the third a bit of a let down, but I had such a great time reading it I could not possibly give it less than five stars. The second part with its forensic analysis of its characters smallest thoughts and interactions was quite superb. Loved the small moments of humour (“from which military junta???”) and the interplay between the characters. Here is an author who knows her setting and its people inside out. The writing was absolutely top quality throughout, with the unusual backdrop of sheepdog breeding proving impressively earthy and tactile in the first section, followed by the deliciously claustrophobic second section. The third enabled a storyline to be rounded off, whilst adding an element of circularity to the novel as a whole. So glad to learn that there are more books out there about these characters. ( )

I like having long, interesting and pleasant stories for audiobooks - they lull me to sleep. This long rambling family story mostly centered on a middle aged Scottish man named Fenno fit the bill. Unfortunately, the reader's soothing accent did not translate to the dialog of the American characters. ( )

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.
