Tom Glenn on Setting the Family Free: This Book Will Stay in My Mind for Years to Come

Tom Glenn is author of novels like Last of the Annamese, No Accounts, and The Trion Syndrome. Here is his reaction after reading Setting the Family Free.

Setting the Family Free creates a genre all its own. It has elements of a crime novel, a romance, and a thriller. But at its heart, it is literary fiction telling the story of a deeply flawed but good man who seeks his own fulfillment through the love of animals. Awed by the power and majesty of exotic animals—lions, tigers, leopards, bears—Sammy Johnson collects them, lives with them, and loves them. His feelings for them, and theirs for him, clash with the norms of the society in which he lives, costs him his marriage, and threatens his way of life. His solution to the dilemma makes for a gripping read. This book will stay in my mind for years to come.”
