Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

St James the Apostle, Montreal, 1902

The interior of Montreal's St James the Apostle Anglican Church, captured in this 1902 Notman Studio photograph. Beatrice, Glassco's mother, attended this church as a child. In 1905, she walked down its aisle to marry his father, A.P.S. Glassco. John Glassco himself was married twice in the church: in 1963 to Elma Koolmer (1917-1971), and in 1974, to journalist Marion McCormick (1924-2004). Glassco's funeral took place at St James the Apostle on 2 February 1981.
