Charles Dubow Update


Author Charles DubowCharles Dubow has been there and done that, spending his summers at the family's place in the Hamptons, counting among his ancestors John Breckinridge, who was the country's youngest vice president and Thomas Pinckney, a general during the American Revolution. A founding editor of Forbes.com, and an editor at Businessweek.com, Dubow's first book takes place in New York City and the Hamptons is about a couple who have it all until one day when a young woman enters their lives. It's been described as "The Great Gatsby" meets "50 Shades of Grey."

Indiscretion Charles DubowA "health scare" several years ago an infection that hospitalized Dubow prompted him to write his first novel, INDISCRETION. Kirkus Review called Indiscretion, ". . . an epic novel of friendship, betrayal and undying love. It's a beautifully written debut. Dubow's book is a page turner that skillfully tugs at the heartstrings."

Girl in the MoonlightHis second book, GIRL IN THE MOONLIGHT, displays the worlds of high society and art, peopled with poignant characters, taking us from the wooded cottages of the Hamptons to the dining rooms of Upper East Side Manhattan to the glamorous nightlife of Paris and Barcelona. It probes the devastating depths of misguided passion and the nature of true love.

Dubow's novels are pleasingly reminiscent of W. Somerset Maugham and F. Scott Fitzgerald for those who enjoy learning how the rich live and wonder whether they can rise above their first-world struggles, to deal with the challenges of daily life.
