Summary
A portrait of a long, passionate, oversized marriage starring Lotto and Mathilde, besotted and impulsively married at 22. Told in two halves, we first meet Lotto, suffering from the early death of his father; self-absorbed, confident of his success, he's both dependent on and supported by his beautiful wife. Then, Mathilde arrives, a whirlwind of rage and grief, a puppeteer behind Lotto's success and a holder of dark secrets.
Critique
This is an intense, singular look at a marriage - do we really know our spouses and what motivates them? - while exploring art and the creative process. Groff's writing is transfixing; she uses Greek mythology to frame the halves and Greek-chorus like asides. This book will take your breath away!
