The author of Indiscretion returns with a scorching tale of love, passion, and obsession, about one man’s all-consuming desire for a beautiful, bewitching, and beguiling woman.

Since childhood, Wylie Rose has been drawn to the charming, close-knit Bonet siblings. But none affected him more than the enchanting Cesca, a girl blessed with incandescent beauty and a wild, irrepressible spirit.

Growing up, Wylie’s friendship with her brother, Aurelio, a budding painter of singular talent, brings him near Cesca’s circle. A young woman confident in her charms, Cesca is amused by Wylie’s youthful sensuality and trusting innocence. Toying with his devotion, she draws him closer to her fire—ultimately ruining him for any other woman.

Spanning several decades, moving through the worlds of high society, finance, and art, and peopled with poignant characters, Girl in the Moonlight takes us on a whirlwind tour, from the wooded cottages of old East Hampton to the dining rooms of Upper East Side Manhattan to the bohemian art studios of Paris and Barcelona. As he vividly brings to life Wylie and Cesca’s tempestuous, heart-wrenching affair, Charles Dubow probes the devastating depths of human passion and the nature of true love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Lifetime of Unrequited Love A well-written novel about lifelong unrequited love and about how our choices, which are often made in brief moments, forge our path, good and bad. It's also a story about family and family connections and how those early connections influence our entire life. I found this novel to be a touching and well-constructed story and I believe it's a novel deserving of more attention. Definitely an underrated gem.

Editorial Reviews

“Compelling. ... From the very first page his sometimes spare, Hemingway-like prose invites the reader to settle in for an engaging tale.”
