April 2014 Debut of the Month.
A classy, sophisticated and enjoyable read, Indiscretion is almost a misnomer for this book as whilst the affair is inevitable (to us at least) from the moment Claire stumbles into the Winslow’s lives, everything about the characters is very properly discrete. Lush and sweeping, with an incredible punch towards the end, the plot will get under your skin even if the pretty detestable characters leave you a little cold.
In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Indiscretion a small number of Lovereading members were lucky enough to be invited to review this title - 'It's hard to believe that 'Indiscretion' is a debut novel for Charles Dubow as he writes with incredible elegance and fluidity... The occasional references to other writers and literature are never pretentious, but they help the reader to connect with the text, albeit through the filter of Walter, and they make 'Indiscretion' a sophisticated and captivating read. I loved it.' - Linda Hill. Scroll down to read more reviews.
