9780916727895: Longing

An intense psychological novel, this book focuses on a young woman's dependence on her husband and her attempts to forge an independent life for herself. Rosa, a frail, sensitive American Jew living in Paris, marries an alcoholic expatriate from Chile and finds herself trapped in a sadomasochistic relationship. Amid a series of fast-moving events-the birth of their daughter, moving to Rosa's parents' home and then to Sausalito, California, and various sexual encounters-this narrative explores Antonio's fears and failures as well as Rosa's implicit trust in him to direct her life. Ultimately, Rosa begins to question her relationship with her husband and her parents.

About the Author:

Maria Espinosa is the author of several books, including the novels Dark Plums, Dying Unfinished, and Incognito, and two books of poetry, Love Feelings and Night Music. She is the recipient of the American Book Award and the PEN Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence. She lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Review:

"Longing is a work of exceptional courage, honesty, and originality which one finds seldom in the Western world—more often in Russian dissident literature. This makes the work a rare document on human relations in our society."  —Nanos Valaoritis, recipient of Grand Greek Prize for Lifetime Work in Literature

"Longing, an immensely moving and intelligent book, describes with great depth and compassion the process of individual evolution . . . the connection to our fellow creatures that we have been trying for ages to deny and, at the same time, longing for."  —Lynn Gray, FM Five



"A serious and interesting study in perceptual relatives. The focus is near obsessional: Is Rosa the victim or is Antonio?"  —Penny Skillman, San Francisco Chronicle
