Award-winning novelist Hilma Wolitzer’s warm, true-to-life tale of a young woman on a quest for love and certainty
Daphne has never met a man who treated her as well as Kenny. The only problem is he’s married. Intoxicated by love in the afternoon, she luxuriates in his affection, but the afterglow fades when Kenny drives home to his wife and children. Although he promises Daphne that he’ll leave them, she’s not sure he will ever be able to give up his family. As Kenny tries to make up his mind about ending his marriage, Daphne finds herself with nothing to look forward to but their stolen hours together. She distracts herself with work in the Palomar Arms, a retirement home where decay hangs in the air. But this proximity to death will make Daphne aware that she is wasting her life. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hilma Wolitzer, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
