The Forgotten Waltz

Paperback edition of the latest novel from the Man Booker Prize winning author of "The Gathering". Set in Dublin in 2009, it follows Gina, who recollects her long affair with a married man. 'An achingly brilliant piece of writing on passion and delusion... This book is enough to restore your faith in the power of fiction' Viv Groskop, "Independent"

Rezension
"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... This book is enough to restore your faith in the power of fiction" Viv Groskop Independent

Zitat
"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... This book is enough to restore your faith in the power of fiction" -- Viv Groskop Independent "An important novel... It is a rare thing: the literary page turner... An acutely tender depiction of the complex familial bonds joining us, a delicate portrait of love, loss and hope, from a formidably talented writer" -- Claire Kilroy Financial Times "A love story for our times... In a single sentence [Enright] conjures up that violent pendulum swing of emotion that can blow whole worlds apart... This is the great pleasure of reading Enright: her sheer virtuoso control of language, those compact sentences, with their occasional flares of lyrical beauty and emotional force" Irish Times "A luminous novel... Haunting, dreamy, sexy and with flashes of salty wit this is one of those novels that you are sorry to see end. It is very much an Irish novel and much of its time but the anatomy of desire and passion are timeless" -- Jennifer Selway Daily Express "The real pleasure of the book is the dancing, delicious prose" Evening Standard
