    1 thought on “Chairs in the Rafters”

    1. I have been waiting for a new novel from Julia Glass and was glad to see that Kindle was making a short story available, Chairs in the Rafters, at a very reasonable price. I am even happier to see that the author has a written a new novel, And the Dark Sacred Night, which will be released on April 1, 2014. I enjoyed the short story, although I think that the author could have expanded this story into a novel, if she filled-in the time between the story’s main events.Chairs in the Rafters follo [...]

    2. This is not an action-packed book. No great saves in the end. It is a book about 4 people (2 men and 2 women) and how their lives are intertwined.The span of time is 15-20 years and how their lives have changed and how it affects the other people. It is a Kindle Single so it is only 37 pages (not very long) but a good book.I thought is was a good book and worth reading all 37 pages. :D

    3. read Julia Glass' Chairs in the Rafters last winter, and loved it. I just went back and re-read it. It's a quick read, the way a Kindle Single should be, but it encompasses a lot of feeling and depth and a whole lifetime of emotion.Chairs in the Rafters starts when our narrator has left her husband for a passionate summer with Nick, the love of her life, in order to decide if she should leave her husband for good. Her decision is made on a trip to New Jersey to visit Nick's best friend and his w [...]

    4. This subtle and unsettling story is about how a small event of our younger lives can spread widely over our present, like a river forming a delta. Here, the event is a New Jersey dinner party that our narrator, a New York City artist, attends with her lover on a crucial weekend. In what follows, we get a highly original picture or the narrator’s relationship with her lover’s best friend. I can’t think of a piece of fiction that fully explores that particular relationship.Julia Glass has a [...]

    5. Absolutely brilliant. Despite being a short piece, it was crafted as any full novel would be. Truly an exceptional read.

    6. This felt like a novel with all of the meat taken out of it. It didn't feel like a short story. I enjoyed it, but really felt like a lot was missing - character motivations, characterization, plot points, etc. I am not sold on the Kindle Single concept.

    7. Disappointing - having read some of her others.The story had " good bones" but certainly needed fleshing out. She has written some good books but this one just kind of skimmed along and left you wanting more detail.

    8. I was delighted to discover this novella by Julia Glass but disappointed by its unevenness. The premise and the characters held possibility but needed more substance and depth. I think this novella could be a novel when it grows up.

    9. A bit overt with the symbolism, but a very atmospheric, elegant, and tragic story all the (short) while, too.
