This is the story of Lotto and Mathilde over the course of their life together, from the lean years after college to later successes. Halfway through the book, the perspective shifts and disparate story threads come together to weave a multidimensional portrait of their marriage, a shared life entwined with passions and secrets. On many “book of the year” lists in 2015, the author of this novel will be speaking at her alma mater, Amherst College, on Thursday, March 3.
