PW Reviews 2018 October #5

Originally written in French, this novel in verse inspired by Pushkin's serialized verse novel and Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin explores first love's ability to linger. A chance meeting on the Paris Metro brings Tatiana and Eugene back together 10 years after the two spent time together one summer, when they were 14 and 17, respectively. Tatiana is now getting her PhD in art history, and Eugene is a business consultant. Neither is prepared for the feelings this encounter dredges up. For Eugene, it's an opportunity to right a wrong; he rebuffed her years ago, and now he's ready for a chance to love. For Tatiana, it's a chance to find out what really happened to a mutual acquaintance, Lensky, who died tragically. Texts, emails, and even Skype messages appear throughout, but the meter and tempo of the words—and the placement of those words on the page—pack the most punch ("This friendship laid out, guts exposed,/ pinned down like a dying butterfly:/ either it will be a museum piece one day/ or it will survive, miraculously"). Anyone who has pined over a relationship will recognize Beauvais's heartbreaking story. Ages 14–up. (Jan.)
