An unforgettable novel about love—and the first work of fiction by the author of the groundbreaking nonfiction bestseller In a Different Voice.

Kyra is an architect, involved in a project to design a new city. Andreas, a theater director, is staging an innovative production of the opera Tosca. Both have come through political upheaval and personal loss. Neither wants to fall in love. Yet when she asks him, “What is the opposite of losing?” and he says, “Finding,” it galvanizes a powerful attraction, and they risk opening themselves to love once again.

When their love affair leads to a shocking betrayal, Kyra’s fierce determination to see under the surface, to know what was true and real, brings her to Greta, a remarkable therapist. As the therapy itself repeats the themes of love and loss, Kyra challenges its structure, and the struggle that ensues between the two women opens the way to a larger understanding.

Passionate and revolutionary, Kyra is an exquisitely written love story, imbued with gentle humor. This is an extraordinary work of fiction by one of the most brilliant writers of our time.

    " Awful. Long-winded, even with dialogue. "

    " This book is thinly written and the characters seem like projections or wish fulfillments. Gilligan wrote a book that challenged the reigning view of women's psychology, so I was curious to read her novel. There are ideas in the book but they aren't, I think, really embodied. "

    " The main character is a GSD prof. in the landscape which is interesting but everything else about it is not so great. "

    " Massachusett island romance, very philosophical. "
