Amy Grace Loyd investigates interior spaces of the body and the New York warrens in which her characters live, offering a startling emotional honesty about the traffic between men and women. The Affairs of Others is a story about the irrepressibility of life and desire, no matter the sorrows or obstacles.
“A wonderful novel, beautifully written and sensuous, rich with emotion and psychological truth. Amy Grace Loyd’s prose hums with desire as she creates a Brooklyn walk-up that comes alive with the yearning of its tenants and moves them toward an unforgettable ending—suspenseful, erotic, and ultimately hopeful.” -Jess Walter, bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins
