This new novel by the Dylan Thomas Prize-winning author of Seating Arrangements makes an ever so graceful leap into the world of professional ballet. At its outset, Joan Joyce is drawing the same conclusion that most ballerinas must make: that she will never be a featured soloist. With her career fading and her relationship with the brilliant Russian dancer Arslan Ruskov faltering, she turns to motherhood and a marriage with her longtime admirer Jacob. As her son grows to adulthood, he too becomes a gifted ballet dancer and his developing talent brings him and his family back into the force field of her former lover. Not surprisingly, tensions mount and secrets erupt. A spellbinder worth several encores.
