Charles Dubow, author of Indiscretion will be in conversation with his editor Henry Ferris.

Every love story has its time, place, and narrator—someone who puts together all the pieces and recounts the sequence of events. Indiscretion starts during an idyllic summer in the Hamptons where the parties are abuzz with an endless supply of flowing spirits, intellectual conversation, and warm hospitality, as only the glow of society could provide. It’s at one such party that the young, vibrant Claire is introduced to the hosts Harry and Madeleine Winslow—an intoxicatingly glamorous couple who quickly welcome Claire into their inner sanctum. Harry and Madeleine’s oldest friend Walter Gervais remembers the day Claire walked into all three of their lives, but could never have predicted all that was about to unfold. Indiscretion is a deeply layered, addictive novel that explores the consequences of decisions made and promises broken.

Advance Praise for Indiscretion

Indiscretion richly delves into the complex permutations of love. Charles Dubow writes with nuanced precision, and his characters are captivatingly real. This is a fine, supple, riveting first novel.”—Kate Christenson, author of The Great Man and The Astral
