Inverse Images explores the contradictory and conflicted life of Joseph Rosenblatt, aprofessor of physics in Montreal.He is a father, a husband, a professor, a member of the Chassidic community. He confronts a variety of stressful and conflicting experiences. His wife Sara, a spiritual woman, devoted mother and pillar of the household, suffers a massive seizure.Rosenblatt himself becomes deeply involved in a dangerous e-mail relationship with a beautiful blonde psychology student in her twenties. Her love of tango is parlayed into a virtual love affair between the ininhibited young woman and the middle-agedprofessor.Inverse Images is wonderfully written, with humour and pathos, narrative and descriptive -almost poetic-passages, harrowing descriptions of fear and anguish, with erotic and insightful paragraphs and pages, metaphors, on tango and desire.
