HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS OFFERS A GRAND REVIEW OF MEMORIES OF GLORY: "It is very difficult to approach a ‘coming of age’ story, and write in such a way as to not appear clichéd, but Elizabeth Marcus Wolfe has made a remarkably strong case." "A compelling feminist take on life dominates, but the feelings of the important men in Glory’s life are not left uncovered." "As a protagonist [Glory] is wonderful; her suffering is a result of both her surroundings and of universal teenage trauma: I found her hugely accessible." "The author clearly has a gift for wit and charm." "This is a vibrant read, and no connection is left unexplored. Friendship, as well as sibling rivalry, is beautifully drawn out..."

I'm a Harvard University graduate with a master's degree in library science. I work as a public library director and write a weekly newspaper column. And now I'm also a college lecturer, teaching a course to graduate students on managing public libraries. Busy!

Memories of Glory: A Novel

Elizabeth Marcus Wolfe

I once imagined myself to be a great queen. But it couldn’t last. Because even queens have to watch their heads. Savages await.


I recall years long gone, at least I think the memories are real. I remember wanting to be someone else, anyone else. I despised my name, my nickname even more, and the oak trees, the snow, and the cow town where I lived my tedious life. I’d have been queen of all England, but Massachusetts haunted me and wouldn’t let me go.

I tell my story looking back after 40 years. I recall crying out to the gods for help with my misery and waiting for someone, anyone to notice. No one did - not Ma, not Dad, not Penny, my dear older sister. Or any of the others. Even Mother Nature, who ruled with a cruel and demanding intensity, didn’t appear to see my pain.

Of course my youth wasn’t all so dramatic. And the memories are not only of me. I recall so much more, I’ve had to let it go, let them tell it their own confused way. I remind myself, it’s been a sea of time since 1968-1969. And scars will lighten, they'll pale unless you keep rubbing at them. Wait long enough, they'll fade.

Hi Wendy, Well it's been ages since I promised, but I finally read the first chapter of your fine book. I like so much about it! I think your character Jade is a very realistic and modern woman. She thinks and feels with a sensibility that is very familiar. I like the way she gets to work in her ... view book

Dear Georgie, Well I was going to review another's book but then I noticed yours is poetry and I was immediately drawn to it. I think your pitch is really excellent. I don't know if it's a cliche about the white collar man finding what life is really all about by giving up the high style life. His ... view book
