"Three Junes almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains. Glass's ability to illuminate and deepen the mysteries of her characters' lives is extraordinary." - Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
"'Three Junes' brilliantly rescues, then refurbishes, the traditional plot-driven novel. . . Glass has written a generous book about family expectations-but also about happiness." - The New York Times Book Review "Gorgeous. . .'Three Junes' goes after the big issues without a trace of fustiness and gives us a memorable hero." - Los Angeles Times Book Review "'Three Junes' is a novel that bursts with the lives of its characters. They move into our hearts, taking up permanent residence, the newest members of the reader's family of choice."-Times-Picayune "Fiercely realized. . .luxuriant in its emotional comprehension and the idea, or promise, that anything might happen."-Boston Globe
"Radiant...an intimate literary triptych of lives pulled together and torn apart."-Chicago Tribune "Sophisticated . . . Engrossing . . . Catches the surprising twists and turns in family relationships, amid love, loss, hope and regret."-Seattle Post-Intelligencer "The sort of sparkling debut that marks a writer as one to watch." -Daily News "The fluid, evolving nature of family history is at the heart of this assured first novel."-Time Out New York "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."-Newsday "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."-Kirkus Reviews "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."-Booklist
