Author(s): Lloyd Jones
'Rosa once said that every change of dance partner brings something new out of you. A new way of moving. An entirely new compass is put in place...' The exotic rhythms of Lloyd Jones' new novel move from the West Coast of New Zealand to Buenos Aires to Sydney; from the closing days of the First World War to the present time and back over a series of heart-wrenching journeys in between. Taking his cue from the tango, Jones examines the possibility of a passion that must remain unfulfilled as it is requited. This sensual new novel by the author of the award-winning The Book of Fame is a scintillating exposition on the ways some of us may fall in love. ++ Finalist for the Deutz Medal for fiction 2002 ++
