The Forgotten Waltz

Anne Enright (Author)
Available

Description

"A new, unapologetic kind of adultery novel. Narrated by the proverbial other woman Gina Moynihan, a sharp, sexy, darkly funny thirtysomething IT worker The Forgotten Waltz charts an extramarital affair from first encounter to arranged, settled, everyday domesticity. . . . This novel s beauty lies in Enright s spare, poetic, off-kilter prose at once heartbreaking and subversively funny. It s built of startling little surprises and one fresh sentence after another. Enright captures the heady eroticism of an extramarital affair and the incendiary egomania that accompanies secret passion: For all their utter ordinariness, Sean and Gina feel like the greatest lovers who've ever lived. Elle"
