Here is my review in my Spanish Blog: http://lunairereadings.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-forgotten-waltz-anne-enright.html
This is the story of Gina, a woman that is having an affaire with a married man and can care less. She is discovered by the man's little daughter kissing him, and she doesn't feel any remorse. She is married herself, and she doesn't care about the harm she is doing to her relationship. This book is like talking to a friend that is blinded with love for a married man while doing a great deal of harm to her marriage, and not even noticing about it. I liked to see how human this woman is. She is not super-good or virtuous or a heroine. She is just human, nastily human, and the pictue is so realistic that as a reader I have to praise the author for such a vivid portrait of a person. I have to confess that I never liked that woman, but I can see that the author can't care less. She just want us readers to have a human conversation and she is not seting any examples or morals. It is a great, intimate book and I am happy I read it.
e poi rimani senza parole: "...it could have been anyone, you know??" she slides on; one scraping step after the other. "but it was't" , she says. I quite can't see her face. "it was you"
