Josipovici's double

Three years after the sublime Everything Passes, Carcanet has announced new fiction from Gabriel Josipovici - "without doubt our most important writer" (Lee Rourke). August will see the publication of After & Making Mistakes; two novels in a single volume.

After "is haunted by a traumatic memory. A woman re-enters the life of a man after fifteen years – for vengeance? for reconciliation? Or is her return only imagined?". Making Mistakes on the other hand "explores the ironies of relationships more playfully. In a reworking of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, two couples change partners – and change again – with the connivance of a modern Don Alfonso and his Despina."
