Lotto and Mathilde are the tall, good-looking, too cool for school, 22-year-old newlyweds. They seem perfect, right? Not so fast. Lotto, by marrying Mathilde, is cut off from his family's fortune, so their first years together are quite lean. Until Lotto becomes a famous playwright.
Fates and Furies tracks the early histories of both Lotto and Mathilde. In addition, we follow them along the course of their marriage.
This book had a very clever structure. However, the most glaring problem I had was that I didn't really care about Lotto or Mathilde, or their marriage. They were not very like-able characters, so meh.
