Ayelet Waldman: Love and Treasure *at Longfellow Books*
Longfellow Books, Tuesday, April 22 at 7pm
Love and treasure by Ayelet Waldman Tuessday, April 22nd, 7:00pm at Longfellow Books

A spellbinding new novel of contraband masterpieces, tragic love, and the unexpected legacies of forgotten crimes, Ayelet Waldman’s Love and treasure weaves a tale around the fascinating, true history of the Hungarian Gold Train in the Second World War. A story of brilliantly drawn characters—a suave and shady art historian, a delusive and infatuated Freudian, a family of singing circus dwarfs fallen into the clutches of Josef Mengele, and desperate lovers facing choices that will tear them apart—Love and treasure is Ayelet Waldman’s finest novel to date: a sad, funny, richly detailed work that poses hard questions about the value of precious things in a time when life itself has no value, and about the slenderest of chains that can bind us to the griefs and passions of the past. “Love and treasure is something of a treasure trove of a novel. Its beautifully integrated parts fit inside one another like the talismanic pendant/ locket at the heart of several love stories. Where the opening chapters evoke the nightmare of Europe in the aftermath of World War II with the hallucinatory vividness of Anselm Kiefer's disturbing canvases, the concluding chapters, set decades before, in a more seemingly innocent time in the early 20th century, are a bittersweet evocation, in miniature, of thwarted personal destinies that yet yield to something like cultural triumph. Ayelet Waldman is not afraid to create characters for whom we feel an urgency of emotion, and she does not resolve what is unresolvable in this ambitious, absorbing and poignantly moving work of fiction." -Joyce Carol Oates "This lush, multigenerational tale...traces the path of a single pendant ... Inventively told from multiple perspectives, Waldman's latest is a seductive reflection on just how complicated the idea of 'home' is—and why it is worth more than treasure." -Publishers Weekly Join us for an evening with Ayelet Waldman, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Mother: A Chronicle of Maternal Crimes. Ayelet Waldman is also the author of novels Red Hook Road, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, and Daughter's Keeper.
