andthedarkFans of Julia Glass' National Book Award-winning debut novel, The Three Junes, will have something to celebrate next year: Glass is bringing back Fenno McLeod for another adventure, although it's Lucinda Burns, the mother of a more peripheral Junes character (cranky and clever music critic Malachy Burns), who is closer to center stage.

Lucinda and her senator husband know something about Kit Noonan's mysterious birth father—but unraveling the secret will have major repercussions for the Burnses and Fenno, who is now in his 60s, as youthful decisions come back to haunt the trio.

And the Dark Sacred Night (the title comes from the song "What a Wonderful World") will be published by Pantheon on April 1. Will you be waiting?
