A moody, sumptuous debut novel set in 1990s Paris

 

Matilde Anselm, professor of cardiac anesthesiology, arrives in Paris from New York to be part of a surgery team in the winter of 1990, as manifestations against the First Gulf War are raging in the streets. Even as her concerns mount over the shadowy protocols surrounding the planned heart transplant, and even as she falls in love with the Arab diplomat in charge of those protocols, a surprise inheritance-a mysterious Paris apartment and a trove of love letters from the Spanish Civil War, bequeathed to her by a stranger-sweep her through a hidden Paris and into the labyrinth of her own buried past.

As the diplomat and the apartment reluctantly reveal their secrets, the tragedies they unearth open a further mystery, the enigma that has haunted Matilde's life. In the end she is left devastated, liberated, and, for the very first time, herself.

Paris Twilight grapples with the meaning of love, the sin of suicide, and the mystery of family in a masterful fiction debut, a dizzying tale of personal transformation.
