Rome, GA (PressExposure) April 02, 2011 -- Folie A Deux by Shula Megiddo follows tumultuous relationship from the thrill of first infatuation to its jealous, dangerous conclusion.
On the Tel Aviv seashore, a fierce love and profound bond come to life between Noya, a divorced scriptwriter, and Yonatan Paran, an attractive, successful, and married lawyer. As their love flares up far from home -- in Eilat, Spain and Paris -- nothing hints at the terrible destruction that lies ahead. The madness surfaces slowly, gradually, sweeping the two toward an abyss of fear and suspicion until even one wrong phone number sets in motion an unbearable cycle of anxiety. The Six-Day War invades their fractured lives, and by the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War they are in what appears to be an irreparable rift.
This is an original novel, written with great sensitivity and strength, depicting the experience of Folie A Deux in which a seemingly healthy woman describes the course of her relationship with a vital, loving man as the seeds of destruction buried deep within him begin to burgeon, sweeping them up in a dizzying swirl of madness and leading to the loss of their world -- a world of great beauty, love and emotion on one hand and bitter suffering, hatred and destruction on the other.
Shula Megiddo says, "Folie A Deux will interest any audience in the psychological & psychiatric field, and their clients as well, because Folie A Deux, though it is in the first place a love story, could almost be read as a case history."
