A Thousand Consolations
A NovelBook - 2017
Believing she may have somehow contributed to her husband's illness, Paula is too crippled by guilt to pursue the dream of acting on her own, and too bitter to believe she'll ever be happy again. Then she meets Héctor - who seduces her into believing in a life in which hope coexists with disappointment, happiness with loss. Paula begins to believe that love is a possibility after all. This is a surprisingly funny novel in which virtuosity, philosophy, and humour endure despite the modern blights of refugee politics and the threat of narcoterrorism.
