A powerful story that explores the modern dilemma of passion versus tranquillity. Set in Paris and New York, The Green Hour tells the story of Dominique, a brilliant art historian who has recently recovered from a bout with cancer. The novel follows Dominique from her college years to the present, unfolding a moving love story in which Dominique is torn between her passion for the idealistic and seductive Rex, who periodically disappears from her life, and her feelings for Eric, a wealthy American businessman deeply in love with her. Woven into this romance is the equally gripping tale of Dominique's relationship with art and the cultural turmoils of our time. By portraying a character for whom love and idealism are lost, this novel hauntingly shows us the importance of pursuing both.

In this novel, Frederic Tuten explores the ageless tension between a life of passion and a desire for ease. Set in Paris and New York, The Green Hour tells the story of Dominique, an art historian who cannot choose between two men who embody the critical schism in her life - unquenchable idealism and material, attainable happiness.
The novel etches the career of this extraordinary woman from her rebellious college years to the present. What unfolds is a passionate love story in which Dominique is torn by her destructive devotion to her first love, the seductive Rex, who periodically appears and disappears from her life, and Eric, a wealthy businessman deeply bound to her.
Woven into this turbulent love story is the narrative of Dominique's intellectual life, revealing her complex relationship with art, tradition, and the cultural turmoils of our time. In portraying a character for whom love and idealism are lost, the novel hauntingly reveals the need for pursuing both.
