"All Most Together Now" is Glenn's first collection of short stories which have been well-received by his fans. Starting with a very young
girl who is endlessly sad because of a drought and ending with a very old man who longs to be on the water, these stories venture into
the happy and sad, the light and dark, the funny and the grim - all with a healthy does of humanity.
Glenn has a way of telling a story that sucks the reader into the lives of characters who seem improbably impossible to like or
understand, but end up becoming close literary friends. Their troubles become our troubles, their triumphs our own personal glories.
Along the way, we laugh with (and at) them, feel for them (or those around them), and finally come to understand them (even if we still
don't really like them!).
"Glenn is the master of straightforward stories about the laughable darkness within our souls. He reaches out with a sharp knife and
cleverly dissects the desires and demons of his characters. His people are real even if they live in unreal circumstances, pushed to
their limits by life, either succeeding or succumbing. Either way, we feel what they feel."
This first collection of short stories is both powerful and provocative, while still allowing for gentle moments of forgotten trust or wistful
longing interspersed with laugh out loud moments of human failures and understanding. In Glenn's hands, even great achievements
become hollow without underlying meaning, and terrific tragedies reveal their comic truths.
As one fan put: "Great bathroom reading!" Or, Glenn would add: bed, porch, beach, mountain top. Just read.
