Indiscretion

Charles Dubow, read by Robert Petkoff. HarperAudio, 10 CDs, 12 hrs., $100 ISBN 978-0-06-223964-8
The lives of the privileged prove to be complicated and fragile in this debut novel from Dubow. Harry and Madeleine Winslow are the perfect upper-class couple. He is a handsome, award-winning author, while she is an athletic beauty of advantaged upbringing. Together they shine bright in their affluent circle of friends. However, sometimes it only takes a random event to tarnish the veneer of perfection. One summer, the couple meets young Claire, an admirer of Harry’s writing, who later is responsible for an indiscretion that upsets the Winslows’ orderly lives. Robert Petkoff beautifully narrates this touching story of love, love betrayed, and love unrequited. Petkoff delivers this lyrically written story, told from the point of view of Walter, Madeleine’s oldest friend and confidant, with a gentle, pragmatic melancholy that perfectly suits the material. A William Morrow hardcover. (Feb.)
