Girl in the Moonlight: A Novel by Charles Dubow

The author of Indiscretion returns with a scorching tale of love, passion, and obsession, about one man’s all-consuming desire for a beautiful, bewitching, and beguiling woman.

Since childhood, Wylie Rose has been drawn to the charming, close-knit Bonet siblings. But none affected him more than the enchanting Cesca, a girl blessed with incandescent beauty and a wild, irrepressible spirit.

Growing up, Wylie’s friendship with her brother, Aurelio, a budding painter of singular talent, brings him near Cesca’s circle. A young woman confident in her charms, Cesca is amused by Wylie’s youthful sensuality and trusting innocence. Toying with his devotion, she draws him closer to her fire—ultimately ruining him for any other woman.

Spanning several decades, moving through the worlds of high society, finance, and art, and peopled with poignant characters, Girl in the Moonlight takes us on a whirlwind tour, from the wooded cottages of old East Hampton to the dining rooms of Upper East Side Manhattan to the bohemian art studios of Paris and Barcelona. As he vividly brings to life Wylie and Cesca’s tempestuous, heart-wrenching affair, Charles Dubow probes the devastating depths of human passion and the nature of true love.

Can only say-please read! A well developed tale, told in a great manner.  This author has an interesting voice, which often overtook me, wanting to hear his words aloud. So intrigued, I read his previous novel "Indiscretion.". I read much, and rarely come across such a well written novel of unrequited love that is not sappy, crass, unbelievable or mundane. Being able to side step all these is quite remarkable. I anxiously await his next work, however that might involve you enjoying this you. Would like to discuss. Believe you will enjoy.

Unsettling obsession by the main character and how his life passed him by.
