* By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham

By Nightfall tells the story of a New York art dealer who after a long marriage inexplicably falls in love (lust?) with his wife’s much younger brother, a drug addict whose parents are funding a life without responsibilities.  It’s unclear he would suddenly be attracted by a man, why he would pick that particular one, and why he would go through with it. So despite the beutaiful prose and the often interesting stories about the world of art collector, I found the story very flat.
