Angel--dark, plain, introverted, and submissive--becomes wholly consumed by her cousin, Lara, and as Lara's life spins in increasingly erratic circles, Angel's passionate devotion to her remains undiminished

Blackwell North Amer
Angel is dark and plain, introverted and submissive, a spontaneous composer of childish verses, wholly consumed by the wild, seductive spell of her cousin Lara - a beautiful, irresponsible creature who expresses herself in free-form dance. What begins as a tender and intimate attachment between two young girls deepens in adulthood into something complex and perilous, as Lara's life spins in increasingly erratic circles while Angel's passionate devotion to her remains undiminished. It is a feverish and impenetrable relationship, of reckless master and willing slave, one forged to shield both Angel and Lara from the harshness of their surroundings, as well as from the far greater terrors of the self. It is a relationship that will end in terror for the young women, and for their families.
Set against the vivid, dream-like landscape of Manhattan in the recent past, Poet and Dancer is an altogether unforgettable novel, written with the subtlety, wry humor, and beauty that are the hallmarks of one of the world's leading novelists and storytellers.
