The Rehearsal

THE REHEARSAL by Eleanor Catton will be published on May 17, 2010.  Here’s the publisher’s description:

A teacher’s affair with his underage student jolts a group of teenage girls into a new awareness of their own power.  As the girls vent to their saxophone teacher while practicing for an upcoming recital, they voice their own longings in ways that, in time-honored adolescent tradition, involve heavy emotion and high drama.  And, in truth, the scandal’s notoriety seems to have turned every act into a performance, every platform into a stage.

But when the local drama school turns the story into their year-end show, the real world and the world of the theater are forced to meet.  With both performances approaching, the boundaries between dramas real and staged, private and public, begin to dissolve.

The Rehearsal is a provocative novel about the complications of human desire and marks the arrival of a boldly inventive and extraordinarily accomplished new voice in contemporary fiction.

About the author:

Born in Canada and raised in New Zealand, Eleanor Catton, 23, is the recipient of the 2008 Glenn Schaeffer Fellowship to study at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in Iowa City, where she now lives.
