Yael Goldstein has given us a delightful, passionate book about the life of the mind, the life of the body, and the life of the heart. Overture is a mesmerizing and wise novel, simultaneously unsparing and tender, and compelling from first page to the last. This is a big book in the best possible way.
—Rachel Kadish, author of From a Sealed Room and Tolstoy Lied: A Love Story
Yael Goldstein’s passionate, precocious novel of creativity and love understands with great wisdom the way all of us—parents and children, artists and appreciators—must fight to find our own voice so that we can be free without resentment to love the world that made us.
—Jonathan Rosen, author of Eve’s Apple
