Becoming Strangers

Becoming Strangers

After more than half a century of marriage, Dorothy and George are embarking on their first journey abroad together. Three decades younger, Jan and Annemieke are taking their last, as illness and incompatibility bring their unhappy union to an end. At first the luxury of a Caribbean resort is no match for the well-worn patterns of domestic life. Then the couples’ paths cross, and a series of surprises ensues—a disappearance and an assault—but also a tempest of passions, slights, misunderstandings and small awakenings that punctuate a week in which each pair struggles to come to terms with what’s been keeping them apart.

Kathleen knows that he will join the other prisoners on their non-cooperation protest, known as the Blanket. Rumors of a hunger strike are beginning to circulate. John Dunn has finished twenty years in the British Army. After three tours of Belfast, he’s found a girl and a house, and a job as a prison guard. In the weeks before Christmas, both Kathleen and John will find themselves in impossible situations. Both will have to find a way to survive when everything they love is in danger of being destroyed.

The Idea of Love

The Idea of Love

Richard is the head of sales in Africa for a pharmaceutical company. He spends most of his time away on business, sleeping with other women and pushing psychiatric drugs on a developing market. Back in Provence, he and his wife, Valérie, no longer share a bed, and his teenage son, Maxence, is hearing voices. When Richard begins an affair with a neighbor, Rachel, he discovers that Valérie, too, is having an affair—with Rachel’s husband, Jeff. Suddenly, a routine trip to Africa to sell pharmaceuticals is more than he can handle and his life starts to implode as he realizes that the idea of love he has cherished is a mere illusion.
