And The Dark Sacred Night
Julia Glass, National Book Award-Winning author of Three Junes returns in 2015 with a tender, insightful exploration of the modern family in her latest book, AND THE DARK SACRED NIGHT.
In her new work, released in January by Anchor , a division of Random House, Kit Noonan is an unemployed art historian with twins to support, a mortgage to pay, and a frustrated wife who insists that, to move forward, Kit must first confront a crucial mystery about his past. Born to a single teenage mother, he has never known the identity of his biological father. Kit’s search ultimately leads him to Fenno McLeod, the beloved protagonist of Glass’s award-wining novel, Three Junes.
In this Authorlink audio interview, Glass talks about the choices that steer our destinies, the necessity of forgiveness, and the risks we take when we face the shadows of our past. Glass also discusses her 2002 National Book Award for Fiction for Three Junes, and her journey as a successful author.
