I just finished reading Julie Glass' new novel AND THE DARK SACRED NIGHT.
Once again she dazzles us with her prose: “Behind her, from one end of the table to the other, lies a shadowy clutter of objects, Dutch still life rendered suburban: three geraniums in off-season bloom, a tumbled stack of schoolbooks, a wineglass bearing a ghostly halo of milk, two yellow pencils (one stippled with tooth marks.)”
You know you’re in good hands with writing this fine.
Her characters are so beautifully drawn they seem to step out of the book into your life. I especially loved Lucinda who must take care of her politician husband on his first night home from the hospital after he's been crippled by a stroke. Readers of THREE JUNES and THE WHOLE WORLD OVER will welcome back old friends and learn what has become of them.
