At eighty-five, Teo is ready to retire from the bombast and romance of life as one of the world?s most influential choreographers. But when he meets Vivi, a fortyish waitress at a Tel Aviv cafÉ, the fires of his youth flare back to life?his passion for a woman?s touch, his long-buried anguish at his wartime experiences, and his complex engagement with dance. Vivi?s life will change, too, as the warmth of Teo?s affection counterbalances her harrowing time as an Israeli soldier in an illicit relationship. For both, their investment in art, and indeed in life itself, will reawaken as the ghosts of their suppressed pasts?from Warsaw to Copenhagen, Berlin to Tel Aviv?cry out for forgiveness and healing.
With lustrous prose capturing the grit and fury of history and the breathtaking power of passion, When We Danced on Water is a compelling novel of intimacy and identity, art and ambition, and how love can truly transcend tragedy.
