True 1st Edition, first printing first impression - unread SIGNED to the title page. Longlisted for 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction. Synopsis: The Forgotten Waltz is a memory of desire: a recollection of the bewildering speed of attraction, the irreparable slip into longing. In Terenure, a pleasant suburb of Dublin, in the winter of 2009, it has snowed. Gina Moynihan, girl about town, recalls the trail of lust and happenstance that brought her to fall for Ôthe love of her lifeÕ, Se‡n Vallely. As the city outside comes to a halt, Gina remembers the days of their affair in one hotel room or another: long afternoons made blank by bliss and denial. Now, as the silent streets and the stillness and vertigo of the falling snow make the day luminous and full of possibility, Gina walks through the weather to meet a girl she calls his Ôbeautiful mistakeÕ: Se‡nÕs fragile, twelve-year-old daughter, Evie. Anne Enright was born in Dublin, where she now lives and works. She has published two volumes of stories, collected as YesterdayÕs Weather, one book of non-fiction, Making Babies, and four novels, most recently The Gathering, which was the Irish Novel of the Year and won the Irish Fiction Award and the 2007 Man Booker Prize.

Sinopsis:

The Forgotten Waltz is a memory of desire: a recollection of the bewildering speed of attraction, the irreparable slip into longing. In Terenure, a pleasant suburb of Dublin, in the winter of 2009, it has snowed. Gina Moynihan, girl about town, recalls the trail of lust and happenstance that brought her to fall for 'the love of her life', Seán Vallely. As the city outside comes to a halt, Gina remembers the days of their affair in one hotel room or another: long afternoons made blank by bliss and denial. Now, as the silent streets and the stillness and vertigo of the falling snow make the day luminous and full of possibility, Gina waits the arrival on her doorstep of Seán's fragile, twelve-year-old daughter, Evie - the complication, and gravity, of this second life.

In this extraordinary novel, this opening book of secrets, Anne Enright speaks directly to the readers she won with the success of The Gathering. Here, again, is the sudden, momentous drama of everyday life, the volatile connections between people; that fresh eye for each flinch and gesture; the wry, accurate take on families, marriage, brittle middle age. The same verve and humour and breathtaking control are evident; the ability to merge the ordinary and the beautiful. With The Forgotten Waltz Enright turns her attention fully to love - you might even call it romance - as she follows another flawed and unforgettable heroine on a journey of the heart. Writing at the height of her powers, this is Anne Enright's tour de force, a novel of intelligence, passion and real distinction.

Críticas: 'Then along comes a novel such as The Forgotten Waltz that blows the whole game right open again. Anne Enright picks up those bright, real-life splinters and blinds you with them. The Forgotten Waltz is an achingly brilliant piece of writing on passion and delusion. Comparisons to Madame Bovary are not overblown, not because it is a wry, clever, philosophical take on adultery - although it is - but because it makes you re-evaluate everything a novel can be. If anything more real is published this year, I will happily submit to a bungled club-foot operation...the garrulous narratorial voice is a joy: funny, companionable...this book is enough to restore your faith in the power of fiction' --The Independent, Viv Groskop, May 2011

`Where the novel compels is in the attendant disquisitions on memory and its rearrangements, both willed and unwilled; the blurring of boundaries, physical and temporal; the vivid presentation of all characters, major and minor; and its funny and forgiving commentary on middle-class aspirational family life in Ireland today'
--Literary Review, Elspeth Barker, May 2011

`This beautifully written, lyrical novel is a portrait of family tensions and the listless half-light in which a mistress must live.' --Sunday Express

'A beautifully observed novel'
--Psychologies

`This beautifully written, lyrical novel is a portrait of family tensions and the listless half-light in which a mistress must live.' --Sunday Express

'A beautifully observed novel' --Psychologies

`a simple tale of adultery, beautifully told...A shrewd and humorous writer...Dancing between humour and pethos, Enright glories in winkling out the truth of a situation and facing reality full on...Humming with naughtiness and warmth, Enrights novel should find a place in every woman's hand-luggage this summer break.'
--The Lady

`Enright has taken a simple plot and produced a touching novel that examines the cost - and the compensations - of love. The heroine is both plausible and sympathetic, while the supporting cast is marshalled with skill, tenderness and humour'
--Mail on Sunday
