Kreutzer Sonata by Margriet De Moor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The new novel from internationally acclaimed author, Margriet de Moor. Kirkus's verdict after reading The Kreutzer Sonata was: 'De Moor is rapidly becoming one of the world's finest novelists.' With an 'astute sense of musical form and a wonderful sense of passion' (New York Times Book Review), master storyteller Margriet de Moor, one of Europe's foremost novelists, once again brings us a richly imagined and highly original tale of passion and jealousy. The unnamed narrator, a young musicologist, befriends the famous blind music critic Marius van Vlooten. They meet on an airplane en route to a master class in Bordeaux, where the narrator introduces Marius to Suzanna, the beautiful first violinist of a string quarter there to perform Janacek's Kreutzer Sonata. From this chance meeting a passionate love affair soon develops between Marius and Suzanna. They become engaged and marry. A series of conversations between Marius and the narrator reveals the truth behind Marius's blindness: when he was a young student he had fallen madly in love with a girl who spurned him. Despairing, he tried to commit suicide, but succeeded only in blinding himself. Now, ten years later, Marius falls prey to another terrible dilemma: he loves Suzanna desperately, but he suspects she has a lover and becomes insanely jealous. His suspicions and his past draw him into a Hitchcockian vertigo, where, through the language of music, the tragedy plays itself out.
