Ballroom
By Alice Simpson

 

Told in interconnecting stories, BALLROOM is a beautifully crafted debut novel about a group of strangers united by a desire to escape their complicated lives in a faded New York City dance hall. Time has eroded the glamour of the Ballroom, but at the end of the1990s, a small crowd of loyal patrons still makes its way past the floor-to-ceiling columns which frame the once grand hall each Sunday evening. Sweeping across the worn parquet floor under a peeling indigo ceiling, these men and women succumb to the magic of the music, looking for love and connection, eager to erase the drab reality of their complicated lives. As the rhythms of the Ballroom ebb and flow through these characters’ hearts, their fates come together in touching, unexpected ways.
