Description
(Winner of the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction) The Man Booker Prize–winning author of The Gathering returns with this sharp, witty chronicle of an affair, told from the perspective of the Other Woman. But The Forgotten Waltz is more than that: Anne Enright also critiques Western materialism and Ireland in the death throes of the Celtic Tiger economy.

"An achingly brilliant piece of writing on passion and delusion. Comparisons to Madame Bovary are not overblown, not because it is a wry, clever, philosophical take on adultery—although it is—but because it makes you re-evaluate everything a novel can be."—Independent (London)

"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
