The Other StoryBook - 2014
A New York Times best seller in hardcover!
From the New York Times and international best-selling author Tatiana de Rosnay comes The Other Story , "[a] brilliant pager-turner"( BookPage ), layered and beautifully written, that is a reflection on identity, the process of being a writer and the repercussions of generations-old decisions as they echo into the present and shape the future.
When Nicolas Duhamel was twenty-four years old, he stumbled upon a troubling secret about his family, a secret that was carefully concealed. In shock, Nicolas embarked on a journey to uncover the truth that took him from the Basque coast to St. Petersburg-but the answers wouldn't come easily.
In the process of digging into his past, something else happened. Nicolas began writing a novel that was met with phenomenal success, skyrocketing him to literary fame whether he was ready for it or not-and convincing him that he had put his family's history firmly behind him. But now, years later, Nicolas must reexamine everything he thought he knew, as he learns that, however deeply buried, the secrets of the past always find a way out.
Page-turning, layered and beautifully written, THE OTHER STORY is a reflection on identity, the process of being a writer and the repercussions of generations-old decisions as they echo into the present and shape the future.
"The tension of Nicholas's unsustainable half-truths and the gradual parceling out of his father's secrets will keep readers in de Rosnay's thrall, hoping redemption will come. Readers in real life should anticipate de Rosnay's latest with all the fervor Nicholas's fans show in awaiting his." - Shelf Awareness
"de Rosnay's fans...will not be disappointed." - Library Journal
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Nicholas Duhamel is a famed writer of a single book; he and his current lover are on a very posh island for a vacation. Nicholas is also 'chatting' and sexting with other women (I find this objectionable!). He is supposed to be completing 'the other story,' but is too busy enjoying the attention of those who recognize him.
I was very disappointed with this book probably as much as I enjoyed Tatiana de Rosnay's other novel I have read: Sarah's key. The book jacket says she has written 10 novels...I'll check out some of her other ones in the future.
