An unforgettable novel about love-and the first work of fiction by
the author of the groundbreaking nonfiction bestseller "In a
Kyra is an architect, involved in a project to design a new city.
Andreas, a theater director, is staging an innovative production of
the opera Tosca. Both have come through political upheaval and
personal loss. Neither wants to fall in love. Yet when she asks
him, "What is the opposite of losing?" and he says, "Finding," it
galvanizes a powerful attraction, and they risk opening themselves
to love once again.
When their love affair leads to a shocking betrayal, Kyra's fierce
determination to see under the surface, to know what was true and
real, brings her to Greta, a remarkable therapist. As the therapy
itself repeats the themes of love and loss, Kyra challenges its
structure, and the struggle that ensues between the two women opens
the way to a larger understanding.
Passionate and revolutionary, "Kyra" is an exquisitely written love
story, imbued with gentle humor. This is an extraordinary work of
fiction by one of the most brilliant writers of our time.
"A triumph. Carol Gilligan has always dazzled and moved us with her
brilliant mind, visionary wisdom, and compassionate heart. Now she
gives us, as well, an irresistible novel about the power of history
to hurt us, but the power of love to heal these wounds and redeem
us. She is amazing."
-Catharine R. Stimpson
