This is her story. About the end of her marriage. About what happened when Christopher went missing and she went to find him. These are her secrets; this is what happened....
A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: It's time for them to separate. For the moment it's a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, she gets word that Christopher has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged south of Greece; she reluctantly agrees to go look for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart she's not even sure if she wants to find him. As her search comes to a shocking breaking point, she discovers she understands less than she thought she did about her relationship and the man she used to love.
A searing, suspenseful story of intimacy and infidelity, A Separation lays bare the guilt that divides us from the inner lives of others. With exquisitely cool precision, Katie Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on edge, with a fiercely mesmerizing story to tell.
"A slow burn of a novel that gathers its great force and intensity through careful observation and a refusal to accept old, shopworn narratives of love and loss." (Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation)
"A novel so seamless, that follows its path with such consequence, that even minor deviations seem loaded with meaning. Wonderful." (Karl Ove Knausgaard, author of My Struggle)

Not a Thriller, but Still Great
- Michael - Audible "Editor at Audible -- I like self-dev, Sci-Fi, and Fiction that leans a little bit towards literary."
Anemic and emotionless performance
I am not sure if I can finish this book I am so put off by the performance. At 1.25 speed it is still slow, emotionless and uninteresting! Can't focus on the story. The worst reading of a book I have heard so far and I am not even getting into the atrocious Greek accent.
