The marriages of desire . . .
From the multitalented and versatile Gloria Vanderbilt comes a passionate, sensual, witty, and puzzling tale of erotic obsession, beauty, and revenge, told in tandem by two women obsessed with the same man—and, ultimately, with each other.
Talbot Bingham is a renowned architectural genius who, with his formidable wife, Priscilla, creates an architectural community. When he dies unexpectedly in the middle of their tenth wedding anniversary celebration, the devastated Priscilla is left keeper of the flame of Talbot's genius. Going through her husband's archives, she comes unexpectedly upon a pile of neatly tied letters, and the shocking secret of her husband's intimate life—a discovery that shatters the foundation of her soul and spirit.
Obsession explores the mysteries of the human heart and the nature of sexuality and obsession, provoking questions about whom we choose to love, and why. The reader is left to decide if the other woman represents another facet of Priscilla, or if Priscilla her-self has invented the other woman who completed the world her husband so recently inhabited?
Reason: I've seen this twice now while hunting for a book to post today and I finally decided to read the blurb. I think what really grabbed my attention was the last sentence...the possibility that Priscilla could have made this "other woman" has really made me curious about the book. I'm definitely going to get myself a copy when I get the chance.
Cover Discussion: I'm not crazy about the cover. However, I can see where there might be a tie in to the novel. After I read it I'll be sure to re-analyze the cover.
Obsession: An Erotic Tale will be released June 23rd!
