Ballroom: A Novel
by Alice Simpson
Though a husk of its former self, the Manhattan dance hall in Ballroom still draws a small crowd of loyal patrons every Sunday evening. What keeps them coming back? Simpson’s debut novel, told in interconnected stories, chronicles the lives of these men and women who find solace within the ballroom’s walls, and in the magic of dance, entwining their stories into a narrative about the instinctual human longing to love and to be loved.
