Harry and Madeleine Winslow have been blessed with talent, money, and charm. Warm and affluent, they play host to a coterie of close friends and acolytes eager to bask in their golden radiance. One weekend at the start of the summer season, Harry and Maddy meet Claire and cannot help but be enchanted by her. Drawn by the Winslows' magnetism, Claire eagerly falls into their welcoming orbit. But, over the course of the summer, her reverence transforms into a dangerous desire. By Labor Day, it is no longer enough to remain one of their hangers-on.

A story of love, lust, deception, and betrayal told through the omniscient eyes of Maddy's childhood friend Walter, a narrator akin to Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, Indiscretion is an irresistibly sensual page-turner that explores having it all, and the consequences of wanting more.

Indiscretion also marks the debut of a remarkably gifted writer and storyteller, whose unique voice bears all the hallmarks of an exciting new literary talent.

Review:

“Indiscretion richly delves into the complex permutations of love. Charles Dubow writes with nuanced precision, and his characters are captivatingly real. This is a fine, supple, riveting first novel.” (Kate Christenson, author of The Great Man and The Astral)

“Charles Dubow has pulled off something remarkable: a finely tuned, perfectly pitched literary novel with the urgency of a tensely plotted thriller. I couldn’t put it down.” (Chris Pavone, author of the New York Times bestseller The Expats)

“An epic novel of friendship, betrayal and undying love ... outstanding” (Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval and Legendary)

“A smart, sensuous, and moving debut. ... Delicious. ... The characters exude a Jazz Age glamour.” (O magazine)

“A cultural lament wrapped in a lesson about extramarital lust--a riveting read.” (Daily Beast)

“Dubow proves himself to be an elegant writer with a shrewd sense of how to shape his material for the broadest appeal. Glamourous settings, old money, and steamy sex all combine to make this one a totally addictive read.” (Booklist)

“Dubow’s first novel is a deliciously absorbing page-turner. His captivating characters jump off the page to pull the reader into their story.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“Dubow has composed an addictive first novel that keeps the reader guessing with the turn of each page. . . . INDISCRETION transcends the love story archetype.” (BookPage)

“Charles Dubow’s greatest triumph is in the way that he reinvents and reinvigorates familiar themes in a mesmerizing new way.” (New World Review)

“An homage to Gatsby-right down to its Nick Carraway-ish narrator-this is a suspenseful, diverting debut.” (People)
