This is a mesmerizing examination of a marriage gone wrong. They had agreed to separate but he makes her promise to tell no one quite yet. Then he disappears and his mother convinces her to find him…somewhere in Greece…..I couldn’t relax until I knew the outcome!
“Accomplished… a coolly unsettling work.” —New York Times Book Review
“A spare and stunning portrait of a marital estrangement… [B]uilds into a hypnotic meditation on infidelity and the unknowability of one’s spouse. In precise and muted prose, the entire story unspools in the coolly observant mind of a young woman… A minutely observed novel of infidelity unsettles its characters and readers.” —Kirkus [starred review]
