“Kitamura’s prose gallops, combining Elena Ferrante-style intricacies with the tensions of a top-notch whodunit.” —Elle
This is her story. About the end of her marriage. About what happened when Christopher went missing and she went to find him. These are her secrets, this is what happened...
A young woman has agreed with her faithless husband: it's time for them to separate. For the moment it's a private matter, a secret between the two of them. As she begins her new life, she gets word that Christopher has gone missing in a remote region in the rugged south of Greece; she reluctantly agrees to go look for him, still keeping their split to herself. In her heart, she's not even sure if she wants to find him. As her search comes to a shocking breaking point, she discovers she understands less than she thought she did about her relationship and the man she used to love.
A searing, suspenseful story of intimacy and infidelity, A Separation lays bare what divides us from the inner lives of others. With exquisitely cool precision, Katie Kitamura propels us into the experience of a woman on edge, with a fiercely mesmerizing story to tell.

after reading this book i felt soooo frustrated!! i was left wishing i could get back the hrs of my life that i spent reading it. it's not the writing that i objected to, it's the story...it felt like i'd been taken for a long, long ride and then i was abruptly dropped off on a dead-end road in the middle of nowhere with no explanation...what the???
What’s the Point?
No answers- just relentless speculation and pointless observations...
Waste of Time
The entire book could be just a couple of pages. What a bore…I stayed with it thinking something must happen at some point…but NOooooo.
