In this elegant and sensual novel, Frederic Tuten explores the ageless tension between a life of passion and a desire for ease. Set in Paris and New York, The Green Hour tells the story of Dominique, an art historian who cannot choose between two men who embody the critical schism in her life: unquenchable idealism and material happiness. The Green Hour is Tuten's richest, most romantic work to date, a treasure from one of our most original contemporary novelists.
"Lawson's performance is earnest and touching." (AudioFile)
"Cleanly reasoned, pellucidly phrased, in some respects this novel is as 'bloodless and cerebral' as Poussin's paintings, and yet as infused with emotion as Goya's. Yet its portrait of a modern woman's dilemma is, in the end, genuinely moving." (Publisher's Weekly)
"Cosmopolitan, erotic, beautifully melancholy, and suspenseful." (Booklist)
