What follows from this opportunity come across is a whirlwind dating the place affection, lust, ardour, jealousy, anger and mistrust roil and curdle.

Before lengthy, it turns into transparent to Sean that Geneva's desirable distinctiveness was once a enthralling interlude, an improvisation opposed to the darkish wave of insanity that his aching love for her wouldn't let him to see.

Dancing upon the Shore is an severe and eloquently written novel that fearlessly confronts the gorgeous and harrowing paradoxes of affection and the darkness and desolation of mental-illness.

The identify is from the lyric poem "A Crazed woman" by means of W. B. Yeats.

A Crazed Girl

That crazed lady improvising her track.
Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in department from itself
Climbing, falling She knew now not the place,
Hiding amid the shipment of a steamship,
Her knee-cap damaged, that woman I claim
A appealing lofty factor, or something
Heroically misplaced, heroically came upon.

No subject what catastrophe happened
She stood in determined track wound,
Wound, wound, and he or she made in her triumph
Where the bales and the hampers lay
No universal intelligible sound
But sang, 'O sea-starved, hungry sea.'

W. B. Yeats
New Poems, 1938
