Publisher's Summary

Two former lovers reconnect in this beautiful and haunting tale of great lost love from the critically acclaimed author of The Headmaster's Wife.
Deeply affecting and compulsively listenable, The Headmaster's Wife was a breakout book for Thomas Christopher Greene. Now Greene returns with a beautifully written, emotional new novel perfect for his growing audience.
Twenty-one years after they were driven apart by circumstances beyond their control, two former lovers have a chance encounter on a Manhattan street. What follows is a tense, suspenseful exploration of the many facets of enduring love.
Told from alternating points of view through time, If I Forget You tells the story of Henry Gold, a poet whose rise from poverty embodies the American dream, and Margot Fuller, the daughter of a prominent, wealthy family, and their unlikely, star-crossed love affair, complete with the secrets they carry when they find each other for the second time. Written in lyrical prose, If I Forget You is at once a great love story; a novel of marriage, manners, and family; a meditation on the nature of art; and a moving elegy to what it means to love and to lose and how the choices we make can change our lives forever.


What the Critics Say

Irritating reader

Great story but this guy's voice is grating. Can't abide it for more than a few pages at a time.

Good but underdeveloped

I liked this book but I thought that there were parts of the characters relationship development that seemed illogically or unnaturally rushed... so it made it really hard to truly emotionally connect even though conceptually it should have been a really touching, dynamic book.
