Pas de Deux

While dancing two roles in a new version of Camelot, the dancer suffers a break with reality and becomes convinced her lover is having an affair with the ballerina performing the Lady Guinevere role. Driven to jealousy, she immerses herself in a fantasy of escape. Filled with striking images and rich language, Pas de Deux leads the reader through a sad, lovely story; akin to watching a tragic ballet unfold on paper.

Advanced Praise

This is the sort of book that one waits for, without knowing of its existence. One submits to this fragile, tumultuous, fresh—and above all anguished—ballet, its ravishment, and is spellbound."

Shawna Lemay, author of All the God-Sized Fruit
