Eleanor Cahn, a professor of literature, wife of a preeminent surgeon, and devoted mother of two, is in Paris to present a paper on Anna Karenina. A chance encounter brings to the surface passions she has suppressed for years. As The Life Room unfolds, we learn the secrets of her erotic past: ethereal William, her high school boyfriend; her role as muse to troubled painter Adam; her marriage to loyal, steady Michael.

From the Back Cover:

 "[A] suspenseful tale ... Bialosky explores the idea that needy people are often the most powerful and destabilizing. We're not sure why Eleanor wants to have an affair ... but we believe she does--and with a kind of reckless illogic that would do Tolstoy proud."--The New York Times Eleanor Cahn, a professor of literature, wife of a preeminent surgeon, and devoted mother of two, is in Paris to present a paper on Anna Karenina. A chance encounter brings to the surface passions she has suppressed for years. As The Life Room unfolds, we learn the secrets of her erotic past: ethereal William, her high school boyfriend; her role as muse to troubled painter Adam; her marriage to loyal, steady Michael. On her return to New York, Eleanor's charged attraction to another man takes on a life of its own, threatening to destroy everything she has. Jill Bialosky has created a fresh, piercingly real heroine who must choose between responsibility and desire. "Bialosky creates a character brave enough to look back and try to regenerate all the emotional intensity of her younger self. Eleanor Cahn's journey is not just a reawakening, but a reclamation of a vital part of herself long buried under domestic minutiae and the travails of balancing family and career."--The Boston Globe "[Eleanor's] resolute self-destruction, with love the prime weapon, gives this novel the feel of an oncoming train.--The Los Angeles Times A Chicago Tribune Favorite Book of 2007 jillbialosky.com  JILL BIALOSKY is the author of the acclaimed novel House Under Snow and three collections of poetry, The End of Desire, Subterranean, and Intruder. She is an editor at W. W. Norton & Company and lives in New York City.
