This book spans three separate Junes and the stories of love and life held in each. Glass writes with skill and compassion, and this book is a calm and literary exploration of the relationships between friends, family members and loved ones. While I enjoyed the book, I am not sure separating it into three parts was necessary. The middle June spanned 3/4 of the book, making the first and last seem like tacked on accessories or short stories. The longest June features Fenno, a gay bookseller in New York City. Some reviews found his character “whiny,” but I feel he was the most flawed and human character in the book and would have been satisfied (more satisfied?) with a focus on his story. Tying the first and last into the middle seemed almost forced, as glancing relationships were pushed into having unnecessary significance. Overall an enjoyable and relaxing read.
