“Cynthia Propper Seton has created one of the decade’s most noble, intelligent, and endearing heroines. . . .How does A Glorious Third compare with A Fine Romance, Seton’s highly acclaimed last novel? That’s like comparing Pride and Prejudice with Emma. Both Seton novels are graced by deadly accurate domestic comedy, by a sphere of action that is limited but somehow universal, and by writing that’s funny, powerful and downright wonderful.” ―Carol Greenberg Gelsenthal, Chicago Tribune Book World “Cynthia Propper Seton’s newest novel is a gem of a comedy. With delectable wit and glittering style, Seton examines the leisured urban upper-middle class, its guilts and self-deceptions, its integrity, poignant strivings, and resignation. . . .The author is a veritable gourmet chef of the language, whipping up verbal delights on every page.” ―Lynne Sharon Schwartz, Saturday Review
