It happened to David Koerner and his wife of fifteen years, Marion. It happened to Elizabeth Adderley and her husband Hilton. At the time this lyrical, literate novel opens, both couples, who have been longtime friends, are going through the arduous process of divorce, struggling with lawyers and finances and children and the awkwardness of dating again for the first time in so long, while simultaneously mourning the loss of what was comfortable and familiar and envisioning the possibilities of a new beginning. A chance meeting between David and Elizabeth at Bloomingdale's leads to these old friends discovering one another anew.
David and Elizabeth are wise, intelligent people, secure in their priorities and sense of themselves. Their conversations are witty, concise, and poignant, full of astute metaphors and insightful remarks about human nature. It is revealed early on that their romance will not last, and this adds a bittersweet element of suspense to the novel as David and Elizabeth's affair blossoms into something harmonious and lovely.
"Another I, Another You" is a thoroughly mundane novel, in the very best sense. It deals with life as it really is and people as they really are. There are no fancy tricks here; even the ironic plot twist at the end is rendered with clarity and truth. This isn't so much a love story as a long meditation on love: love found, love lost, love expressed, love remembered, love enduring.Read more ›
