During a snowstorm, Gina Moynihan reminisces the string of events that brought her the love of her life, Sean Vallely, and recalls their affair.
October 18, 2011 Novelist Anne Enright manages to turn her narrator's troubled, life-changing affair into an extended metaphor for Ireland's spectacular recent boom and bust. The Forgotten Waltz is about the uncontrollable forces that drive us into mayhem, bursting both our familial and economic bubbles.
