The night he discovers Laura Pettit standing at his windowsill, Paul is eleven years old, a boy precociously adept at the art of watching the world. Laura is twenty-two, a fiercely passionate and independent poet already experiencing the first flickers of fame, a beautiful woman on the brink of seducing Paul's father. No matter; Paul is smitten. That night, Laura issues Paul a wholly impossible command, one that will haunt and consume both of them for the rest of their lives: "Forget me".

Laying bare the inner life of one man during the course of nearly four decades, Larry Watson delivers a riveting treatise on the excruciating power of love -- and two of the most remarkable characters in recent fiction. Laura is an extraordinary triumph of the novelist's art.
