Winner of the National Book Award 2002


Three Junes by Julia Glass is the winner of the National Book Award for Fiction 2002.  From the publisher: "Three Junes is a vividly textured symphonic novel set on both sides of the Atlantic during three fateful summers in the lives of a Scottish family. "  


November 23, 2002
— The resounding response by critics, other authors, and the public is that this book would be an amazing achievement by any novelist, but as a first work it's astounding!


 "Three Junes almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains. Glass' ability to locate the immense within the particular, and to simultaneously illuminate and deepen the mysteries of her characters' lives, would be marvelous in any novelist. In a first-time novelist, it's extraordinary." Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
