A New York Times best seller!

From the New York Times and international best-selling author Tatiana de Rosnay comes The Other Story, "[a] brilliant pager-turner"(BookPage), layered and beautifully written, that is a reflection on identity, the process of being a writer and the repercussions of generations-old decisions as they echo into the present and shape the future.

Vacationing at a luxurious Tuscan island resort, Nicolas Duhamel is hopeful that the ghosts of his past have finally been put to rest... Now a bestselling author, when he was twenty-four years old, he stumbled upon a troubling secret about his family-a secret that was carefully concealed. In shock, Nicolas embarked on a journey to uncover the truth that took him from the Basque coast to St. Petersburg-but the answers wouldn't come easily.

In the process of digging into his past, something else happened. Nicolas began writing a novel that was met with phenomenal success, skyrocketing him to literary fame whether he was ready for it or not - and convincing him that he had put his family's history firmly behind him. But now, years later, Nicolas must reexamine everything he thought he knew, as he learns that, however deeply buried, the secrets of the past always find a way out.

"The tension of Nicholas's unsustainable half-truths and the gradual parceling out of his father's secrets will keep readers in de Rosnay's thrall, hoping redemption will come. Readers in real life should anticipate de Rosnay's latest with all the fervor Nicholas's fans show in awaiting his."-Shelf Awareness

    All is vanity. Nothing is fair.
    —WILLIAM THACKERAY


    WHEN NICOLAS ARRIVED AT the Gallo Nero, he felt as if this was not a hotel, but someone's home, a long ocher house with a dark red roof and green shutters. Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, and Jaguars were parked farther off. Up a couple of steps, then the door opened. A svelte woman in a black suit uttered his name as if it were the most enchanting sound in the world. Malvina and he were shown through a lobby which looked nothing like a hotel lobby, more like the entrance to a friend's welcoming abode: tiled floors, beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace with a painting of a rooster hanging above it, comfortable white sofas, bright-colored cushions, plants, low tables, stacks of books and magazines. Through the open bay windows, he could see out to the candlelit terrace and hear the murmur of voices, laughter, the click of ice cubes, the tinkle of a piano playing "The Girl from Ipanema." The Gallo Nero smelled of cinnamon and sunshine, lemon and lavender, but also, most important, of pleasure and money.
    Two weeks ago, in Paris, on a sweltering day at the beginning of July, a blue-eyed journalist from a glossy magazine, Frédérique, a pretty girl with a toothy smile, had murmured over lunch at the Cigale Récamier, "Nicolas, you must go to the Gallo Nero." She mentioned it as being the ideal place for a luxurious getaway. Easy to remember. The Black Rooster. He looked it up. Exclusive. The kind of spot the happy few discreetly flocked to. The resort was situated on a tiny island off the Tuscan shore. It had a private rocky beach accessed by a James Bond–like elevator built into the cliff, a famous chef, tennis courts, and a kidney-shaped seawater pool. The prices were indecent. But this was tempting. He was longing to escape from the stuffy Parisian summer. And he had not been back to the Italian seaside since 2003, since that trip with François, his best friend. He called the Gallo Nero, and the condescending person who answered the phone announced, "I'm sorry, signor, there are no vacancies for that week. We are booked months in advance." Nicolas mumbled an apology, and this: "Can I leave my name and number in case you do have a vacancy? It's my girlfriend's birthday, and ... well..." A sigh on the other end of the line. He assumed the sigh meant a yes, so he muttered, "Nicolas Kolt." Before he could get started on his number, a strangled moan was heard. "Excuse me?" gasped the woman, as if someone were throttling her. "You said Nicolas Kolt." He was getting used to this, but it had not yet begun to weary him. "The writer? The author of The Envelope? Signor Kolt, you should have told me right away who you were; of course we have a room for you—in fact, one of our prettiest rooms, with a lovely view over the Monte Argentario. When would you be coming, Signor Kolt?"
    They got in late Thursday evening, Malvina supine, after a long trip, a flight from Paris CDG over to Rome FCO, where a chauffeur came to pick them up, and then the drive along the coast. This Friday morning, Malvina is still asleep in the large room, which is indeed lovely. Tasteful tones of sand and beige, aquarelles of Italian villages, creamy white curtains and bedcover. White roses, small bowls of figs and grapes. An envelope with a personal greeting from the hotel director, Dr. Otto Gheza. Nicolas rises early, taking care not to wake Malvina, and peeks out from behind the curtains to the balcony with its two deck chairs, square teakwood table, and potted bay trees. He slips his bathing suit on and the fluffy bathrobe hanging on the bathroom...

    A best-selling French author with writer's block agonizes at a luxurious Italian resort in de Rosnay's oddly static latest (The House I Loved, 2012, etc.). The main action here consists of 29-year-old Nicolas Kolt sitting around feeling sorry for himself at the Gallo Nero off the Tuscan coast. Oh, sure, he's rich and famous, thanks to his globally best-selling first novel, The Envelope. But that was published four years ago and was based on the true history of his enigmatic father. Without real-life inspiration to lean on, Nicolas is having a hard time coming up with a new book. Though he assures his anxious publisher that he's writing away, he's mostly wasting time on social media, exchanging pornographic instant messages with a married woman in Germany, and being told off by old friends for having become lazy, selfish and spoiled. Readers will heartily agree as they endure Nicolas' solipsistic musings about how much he misses his former love Delphine and how he should really call his mother, all the while checking his Facebook page to see if there are any new photos taken by an anonymous fan who's also vacationing at the Gallo Nero. The swanky setting is over-the-top enough for a Harold Robbins novel (ditto the Blackberry-enabled sex scenes), and de Rosnay's way of demonstrating that Nicolas is a real writer is to show him watching the other guests, which might work if his observations ever went beyond superficial judgments. His 22-year-old girlfriend, Malvina, is a whiny bore, the extensive flashbacks not much more interesting as they limn Nicolas' childhood, his father's mysterious death and his discovery of previously unknown Russian roots. The climactic shipwreck that finally gives Nicolas new literary material is ridiculous but a relief; at least we won't have to hear any more about his writer's block. Not that de Rosnay ever wrote literary fiction, but previous books like Sarah's Key (2008) have more emotional substance than this.

    With this story of a self-absorbed, newly wealthy writer struggling with his identity and coming to terms with the shocking secrets of his family's past, de Rosnay (Sarah's Key; A Secret Kept) continues her literary trend of combining international locations and complex characters. Nicolas Duhamel, a best-selling author who has changed his surname to Kolt, finds himself at a crossroads while taking a long weekend with his girlfriend at a luxurious resort on the Tuscan coast. A womanizer and Internet addict, Nicolas reflects on his dark family history as he exchanges illicit texts and emails with Sabina, a woman he has met only once, and interacts with another woman who may or may not be a very famous titan of the publishing world. Trying to follow up his enormously successful first novel, our hero struggles with writer's block. VERDICT Most of the book is driven by internal action, told through memories and partially through flashback. Certain plot twists seem obvious, but de Rosnay has a clever way of keeping the audience interested in the story line even if the main character himself is unlikeable. Despite these flaws, de Rosnay's fans and readers who enjoy contemporary interior novels will not be disappointed.--Mariel Pachucki, Maple Valley, WA

  • Booklist "The author of the incredibly popular Sarah's Key (2006) likely drew on her own experiences to flesh out Nicolas' struggles and triumphs. Fans of Markus Zusak and loyal de Rosnay readers will enjoy this inspiring and introspective novel, as may anyone intrigued by a peek inside the world of high-stakes publishing."
