Summary: Set against the backdrop of a ballet, Pas de Deux is the story of one dancer's descent into madness and the catastrophic consequences it has on her relationship with the photographer assigned to the troupe. While dancing two roles in a new version of Camelot, the dancer suffers a break with reality and becmes convinced her lover is having an affair with the ballerina performing the Lady Guinevere role. Driven to jealousy, she immerses herself in a fantasy of escape. Filled with striking images and rich language, Pas de Deux leads the reader through a sad, lovely story; akin to watching a tragic ballet unfold on paper.
