One day in the old Jewish quarter of the city, where she has taken Raphael's flute to be repaired, Saffie meets a Hungarian instrument maker - and all their lives are unexpectedly, dramatically altered.
Nancy Huston is the author of the bestselling novel The Mark of the Angel (winner of the Grand Prix Lectrices d'Elle in France), as well as other award-winning fiction, including Plainsong (Governor General Award in Canada for fiction in French), Instruments of Darkness (Prix Goncourt de Lyceens), Slow Emergencies and Dolce Agonia. Born in Calgary in 1953, she went to Paris as a student in the 1970s and lives there still. She is married to the writer and intellectual Tzvetan Todorov and has two children.
"You may never read a novel crafted with more wonder and mystery than Nancy Huston's The Mark of the Angel. At once compelling and highly original, it probes not merely the characters' hearts and lives but the very nature of storytelling." -Arthur Golden, author of Memoris of a Geisha
"Huston's language is beautiful, with startling juxtapositions of imagery.... Huston has made a chilling and beautiful work of art." -"Boston Phoenix"
"Describing Nancy Huston's wonderfully provocative and enigmatic new novel as a tale of adultery in the dreary and uncertain Paris of 1957-1963 is to suggest that The Scarlet Letter is about infidelity and Moby Dick about whaling.... This is a superbly readable story spun with perfect ease and balance." -"The Providence Journal"
"The writing style is almost tactile, like a dressmaker caressing a fine peice of silk or satin the better to show it off. Huston has a sensitive yet sure-handed grasp of her craft." -"Washington Times"
"A brilliant, powerfully written novel." -"Rocky Mountain News"
"At once [a] love story, war tale and psychological thriller....An engaging, intelligent novel." -"The Plain Dealer"
