Description

How well do you really know the people you love? How well do you know yourself? Attachment is a bold and thoughtful fictional debut that reaches from the Indian Ocean to London and New York, and into the most confounding precincts of the human heart. Jean Hubbard is a syndicated health columnist, her husband Mark, a successful advertising-executive. After more than twenty years together, they revel in a sabbatical on a remote tropical island. But when Jean opens an erotically charged email intended for Mark, she realizes that she has misdiagnosed some acute pathologies in her own life. The long idyll is over -- but a more vivid, and compelling, quest has just begun. Searching for answers Jean goes undercover: with a surreptitious correspondence that propels her on to alarming, and illuminating, adventures of her own. Assured, funny, tender and provocative, Attachment is a dazzlingly good first novel - unflinching in its depiction of desire, of the responsibility that comes with age and family, and of the impulses that colour and disrupt our lives even as they reveal, ever more clearly, the nature of love.
