2012 Winner of the Andrew Carnegie Award for Excellence in Literature


"This stunning novel by a Booker Prize winner . . . Offers up its brilliance by way of astonishingly effective storytelling."—Booklist, starred review

"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

You'll like it!

Not the sort of book I would read normally, but I came across it and said why not? The book is a quick read and really is wonderfully written! The authors flair for language, phraseology, and style truly make it a beautiful read! I will definitely read her other work! Enjoy!

What a waste of time and money

I started this novel and wasn't totally sure about it, but i wasenjoying the read. But it really lacks any character depth, storyline, or plot. The worst was the ending! You were just beginning to think the character was examining Sean and then it ended with no real finish. It left me hanging not understanding what the point was!

The Forgotten Waltz

I was't very entertained by this book and it didn't move me in any particular way but in it's defense I think I was expecting more passion. It had gotten so many good reviews... It was only finished by me because I can't stand not reading a book all the way through.
