“Subtle, astute . . . With Layover, Zeidner joins the ranks of Doris Lessing, Margaret Atwood and Fay Weldon.” —Karen Karbo, The New York Times Book Review

 

Claire Newbold has watched her life collapse: her only child has died, her husband has been unfaithful, and she’s just learned that she’s infertile. She tries, dutifully, to go through the motions of her daily routine, but then she walks out of work on a whim, and soon she’s living out of hotels—not always with the intention of paying for them—and confronting loss. As Claire indulges in a pattern of seduction and deception, she begins to feel that she is clairvoyant, capable of “reading” strangers without knowing them. As she struggles to find redemption in her marriage and her life, she finds herself wondering: Is she erratic or just full-on deranged?

Lisa Zeidner’s Layover is a provocative, affecting, and confident novel. As The New Yorker said, “Zeidner’s writing is like her heroine: taut, intelligent, and seductive.”
