#FridayReads The Glacier



The Suburbs a street view

Read an excerpt below from Jeff Wood's cinematic novel, The Glacier.

In a starred review, Library Journal said: “Rendered partly as prose poem—paragraphs strung down the pages like a necklace—and partly as sharply delivered play-script... this novel highlights the hollowness of rapid suburban growth at the turn of the millennium... Gorgeously and urgently written.”

The Glacier follows a cater-waiter at a convention center, a disillusioned poet-surveyor residing in a storage unit, an ice cream truck driver, and the masses lining up for an Event on the horizon, on the eve of the new millennium.

"The Glacier is altogether new and incredibly familiar at the same time. It’s the story of what was and what can be, simultaneously. It seduces you slowly, the reader hypnotized from the first page." —Heavy Feather Review
