"A new, unapologetic kind of adultery novel. Narrated by the proverbial other woman--Gina Moynihan, a sharp, sexy, darkly funny thirtysomething IT worker--The Forgotten Waltz charts an extramarital affair from first encounter to arranged, settled, everyday domesticity. . . . This novel's beauty lies in Enright's spare, poetic, off-kilter prose--at once heartbreaking and subversively funny. It's built of startling little surprises and one fresh sentence after another. Enright captures the heady eroticism of an extramarital affair and the incendiary egomania that accompanies secret passion: For all their utter ordinariness, Sean and Gina feel like the greatest lovers who've ever lived."--Elle
