The Forgotten Waltz by Anne Enright.. A sexy, emotionally layered novel about the decline and fall of the modern Ireland, told through the lens of the Other Woman in a lasting affair. A rare two-fer from LitSnap, but the double dose of Enright would be a trend if there were more writers so back-to-back good.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"A gorgeous critique of Ireland as the Celtic Tiger draws its dying breaths . . . [A] masterful and deeply satisfying novel."

Publisher's Weekly

"The real magic is in Enright’s prose, which burrows into characters like fingernails into skin, peeling back the hidden layers of ordinary interactions and momentary thoughts. Material that another writer might string across a whole book, Enright burns up in a page, like it’s nothing, using it to create a jagged portrait of Dublin during the recent boom."

The Los Angeles Times
