Julia Glassâ€™s latest book strikes right to the core of personal identity. How do we solidify our sense of who we are if we donâ€™t know where we came from? In what ways can we take our place in the universe if our knowledge of our past is incomplete?
I loved THREE JUNES by Julia Glass and her newest novel, THE WIDOWER’S TALE, has much the same wonderful flavor about it. This languid story of a family dealing with their relationships with one another and the instrusions of the outside world delights the senses. The central character is Percival Darling, widowed for the last thirty-two years, and a somewhat crusty, cynical and reclusive personality.
