This is a complex love story, full of secrets and passion and regrets.  Lotto's story comes first (Fates), followed by Matilde's (Furies), which takes mostly everything you've read and turns it on its head, giving it a bit of a sinister undertone and tinges it with sadness.  Brilliant prose.

Entertainment Weekly’s #1 Book of 2018

“One of the most compelling protagonists modern fiction has offered in years: a loopy, quietly furious pillhead whose Ambien ramblings and Xanaxed b*tcheries somehow wend their way through sad and funny and strange toward something genuinely profound.”
— Entertainment Weekly
