A successful and renowned conductor of a major symphony orchestra in Sao Paulo is married to a beautiful and talented violinist, close to thirty years his junior. But his happiness is undermined by two fears: that he will never wholly share her life because, unlike her, he is not Jewish; and that she will be unfaithful to him. Jealousy -- beyond the reach of reason -- haunts his every moment, gnawing at his trust, his love, and ultimately his sanity. Black Waltz opens a fascinating and harrowing window into a mind bordering on paranoia and psychosis. -- Back cover

Deux amants diaboliques, flanqués d'une secrétaire blonde et plantureuse, cherchent à se débarrasser d'un mari encombrant.

Mais, si l'auteur explore les ingrédients habituels d'un genre littéraire auquel elle rend hommage, c'est par le biais de la parodie. Le véritable protagoniste est ici le mensonge
