The critically acclaimed author of Russian Winter turns her "sure and suspenseful artistry" (Boston Globe) to the lives of three colleagues and lovers in the world of classical music in this beautifully composed novel.
On a Boston street one warm spring day, Hazel and Remy spot each other for the first time in years. At first their brief meeting might seem insignificant. But behind them lie two decades in which their life paths have crisscrossed, diverged, and ultimately interlaced. Remy, a gifted violinist, is married to the composer Nicholas Elko--once the love of Hazel's life.
Lyrical and evocative, Sight Reading is a moving exploration of what makes a family, of the importance of art in daily life, and of the role of intuition in both the creative process and the evolution of the self.
