19-03-2019 12:00:00 19-03-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Albertine Book Club on Villa Amalia by Pascal Quignard Join us for a lively conversation with Deputy Cultural Counselor Hervé Ferrage, Ondine Cotto and Miriam Bridenne on Villa Amalia by Pascal Quignard, translated from the French by Chris Turner (Seagull Books). View the full winter/spring 2018 Albertine Book Club on the Albertine website In Villa Amalia, musician Ann Hiden suspects that her partner, Thomas, is cheating on her. Once her intuitions are confirmed, she takes radical action: while Thomas is away, she resolves to secretly sell their shared house and get rid of all physical manifestations of their sixteen years together. Thomas returns to find her gone, the locks changed, and his few possessions packed up and sent to his office. Ann, meanwhile, has fled the country and started a new, hidden life. But our past is never that easy to escape, and Ann’s secrets eventually find her. Villa Amalia is the rapturous account of Ann’s quest for solitude and inner peace. Fascinating and enchanting! The Albertine Book Club is free and open to Albertine members and students with valid ID.
