Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Drum King A woman in her early forties embarks upon a dangerous path of self discovery, ultimately destroying the only good thing in her life. Despite the somber undertones, I really enjoyed this tale of two people telling each other stories about their lives that neither believes. Kosar's characters are believable because they are flawed. Her writing style is similar to Clive Barker's without the supernatural twists. Truly an interesting read if only for the contrasts presented by the main characters.

From Our Editors

Forty-one-year-old Grace is an English professor in Toronto who becomes romantically involved with a young and very handsome man claiming to be from Buenos Aires. At first, the relationship is purely sexual, but slowly becomes a more intimate bond that draws out Grace's stiff upbringing by a domineering father. Her background comes back to haunt her when her sister shows her new lover the darkness of her family history. This engaging and mysterious tale is by the author of The Girl in the Office.
