His Secret Little Wife is the story of a brilliant young cellist and her sexual affair with the famous composer and conductor who created her.
It is a story of seduction, of hope, of obsession and triumph. It is also the story of a supremely narcissistic man of genius and insatiable appetites whose magnetic appeal is irresistible, even to those he would use, discard, and even destroy; a bold man with a horrendous sense of entitlement who takes what he wants to take, dumps whom he wants to dump, and never looks back; a man incapable of sorrow, of grieving; a man who destroys everything in his wake. Told through the eyes of a child – as if Lolita had narrated her tale rather than Humbert Humbert – the narrator doesn’t understand the darker side of her relationship with The Maestro as she blossoms within a world that lacks all boundaries. Employing a beautiful and unique style, Fredrica Wagman makes the reader privvy to the thoughts and emotions of a young girl caught in the throes of a relationship beyond her own comprehension.
