From acclaimed author Evan Fallenberg, an exquisitely crafted debut novel tells the story of a preeminent male ballet dancer in the autumn of his career—a Jew whose talent once saved him from the Nazis—whose fading passion for life will flares back to life after a new romance links him to a younger woman fleeing the ghosts of her past as an Israeli Soldier. Fallenberg’s Tel Aviv-set tale that will resonate with readers of Wladyslaw Szpilman’sThe Pianist, Dalia Sofer’sThe Septembers of Shiraz, and Thrity Umrigar’s The Space Between Us, as well as any who have been touched by war or diaspora, as two characters’ intimate journey poignantly explores the pain of fractured pasts, the hope for second chances, the potency of artistic catharsis, and the certainty that love can conquer all.
