A venerable novelist, recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, awaits word on the critical reaction to his latest book. When the daughter of friends, hoping to be a writer, comes to work as his assistant, he quickly discovers that she has a talent – and a talent for operating in the fraught, explosive climate of current gender relations – that could well eclipse his own. Setting aside his own work, he devotes himself to helping her finish her book.
A tale of enthrallment, treachery, trust, and betrayal, Dusk explores the nature of power in the changing sexual landscape and the space in which ambition and desire burn everything in their path.
