Diablerie by Walter Mosley
Diablerie: Book summary and reviews of Diablerie by Walter Mosley
Ben Dibbuk has a good job, an accomplished wife, a bright college-age daughter, and a patient young mistress. Even as he goes through the motions of everyday life, however, inside he feels nothing. The explanation for this emotional void lies in the years he spent as a blacked-out drunk before pulling his life togetheryears in which he knows he committed acts he doesnt remember. Then a woman from his past turns up at a gala for his wifes new gig at a magazine called Diablerie and makes it clear that she remembers something he doesnt. Their encounter sets wheels in motion that will propel Dibbuk toward new knowledge, and perhaps the chance to feel again. With the same erotic force as Killing Johnny Fry, but grounded in a far darker vision of human nature, Diablerie is a transfixing new novel from one of our most powerful writers.
