Some discussions are better than others and yesterday was one of the better ones. The book was Seven Months by Swiss author Peter Stamm who leaves enough out for readers to imagine, almost writing scenes for themselves. The plot is a simple one, a triangle, a wife, a mistress and a husband. ┬áThe story, however, is not simple and the triangle is not your usual one. The wife is brilliant and beautiful, more congnitive than sexual, the mistress, unattractive, not gognitive, passive, and not particularly sexual. The husband doesn’t know who he is, what he wants and whit he is obsessively drawn to his mistress even though he has nothing but disdain for her.
