Résumé:

"A Week in October is a thriller for those who usually prefer a good love story. Clara Griffin, the beautiful wife of a successful Chilean architect, courageously confronts a life-threatening illness while recording her thoughts and experiences in her journal in the guise of a novel. What develops is a thinly veiled version of her own life, her disappointment with their cold marriage, her reminiscences of childhood, and the death that seems to surround her. Her husband discovers the notebook and is stunned: How does she know that he had a mistress all these years? Is he really such a fatuous bore? Could it be true that his sick wife had a passionate love affair with one of his colleagues, right under his nose? Is this just a fictional story--he asks himself, turning the pages--or his wife's very personal diary as she awaits death? A Week in October is Elizabeth Subercaseaux's first novel to be translated into English. This extraordinary tale about erotic tension, deception, and resilience keeps us in suspense, between laughter and tears, until the unexpected, haunting ending that ponders the mysteries of a woman's heart, where truth is a lie and a lie is truth."--Provided by publisher.
