A powerful, moving book of secrets, longing and loss, from the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Gathering.
If it hadn't been for the child then none of this might have happened. She saw me kissing her father.
She saw her father kissing me.
The fact that a child got mixed up in it all made us feel that it mattered, that there was no going back.
"The Forgotten Waltz is that rare thing: the literary page turner... It is an acutely tender depiction of the complex familial bonds joining us, a delicate portrait of love, loss and hope, from a formidably talented writer"
(Claire Kilroy, Financial Times)
