Five years after her young husband's death, Celia Cassill has moved
from one Brooklyn neighborhood to another, but she has not moved
on. The owner of a small apartment building, Celia believes that
she has a right to her ghosts, and she has chosen her tenants for
their ability to respect one another's privacy. But everything
changes with the arrival of Hope, a dazzling woman of a certain age
on the run from her husband's recent betrayal. When Hope begins a
torrid and noisy affair, and another tenant mysteriously
disappears, the carefully constructed walls of Celia's world are
tested and the sanctity of her building is shattered. Ultimately,
Celia and her tenants must abandon their separate spaces for a more
intimate one, and the promise of genuine joy.
Amy Grace Loyd investigates interior spaces, of the body and the
New York warrens in which her characters live, offering a startling
emotional honesty about the traffic between men and women. "The
Affairs of Others" is a story about the irrepressibility of life
and desire, no matter its sorrows or obstacles.
