About this product
- DescriptionWhy is it easier for a woman to be a muse than to have one? Can one be fully creative in art or life without the inspiration of erotic love? These are the questions asked in The Geometry of Love, a vel set in New York in the 1980s, then fast-forwarding to Northern California 20 years later. Julia, an aspiring poet, is living with her British boyfriend Ben, a restrained professor at Princeton, when she has a chance meeting with Michael, a long-ago friend. A charismatic composer, Michael was once a catalyzing muse for her, but w returns as a destabilizing influence. Julia longs to become involved with Michael, but hesitates to give up the security of her relationship with Ben. When Michael signals he is too wounded to make a commitment, Julia turns her triangular situation into a square by setting him up with a cousin. In the process she discovers, as Pascal once said, that the heart has its reasons which reason does t kw. This deeply psychological tale explores the surprising ways we make romantic choices.
