Julia Glass is one fine writer. I loved her second novel, The Whole Wide World, best, and Three Junes, her first novel was as good. I realized when I finished The Widower's Tale last night and I was glancing at the author's photo, reading the about the author, the list of books, that I haven't read I See You Everywhere. Goody! I have a book to look forward to.
The Widower's Tale felt a little darker than her other books to me, with some iffy characters, which makes for good reading. And she really captured the voice and attitude of a 70-year-old man. Amazing.
While reading this book, I made a rare discovery: lint in literature! I love when I read about lint in novels. I wrote a recent lint filter blog entry about it in fact.
