DESCRIPTION
New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine - Finn; his wife, Taylor; and their daughter, Snow. "From the beginning," says Taylor, "it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together." Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present. Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage. With her inimitable psychological astute-ness and uncanny understanding of the human heart, Ephron delivers a powerful meditation on marriage, friendship, and the meaning of travel. Set on the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea, Siracusa unfolds with the pacing of a psychological thriller and delivers an unexpected final act that none will see coming.
REVIEWS
`A seductive take on marital betrayal.... the secrets and lies at the heart of all relationships.' * Tatler * 'A brilliantly observed novel.' * Good Housekeeping * `This is a delicious story, ripe for a cinematic adaptation.' * Bookbag * 'An unusually crackling, tricky journey into the distant land of other people's marriages ... Ephron writes like a warm-blooded Patricia Highsmith.' * Meg Wolitzer * `Siracusa is an Italian aria, a Greek tragedy and a modern American masterpiece written by Delia Ephron at the height of her powers...unforgettable.' * Adriana Trigiani * 'A stunning portrait of two marriages coming unraveled during the stress of travel abroad. Insightful and engaging. A must-read!' * Sue Grafton *
