“If you’ve ever dreamed of having an Italian romance, Jessica Levine’s Nothing Forgotten is the next best thing . . . and maybe better . . .”

—LAURA FRASER, author of An Italian Affair

 

“Levine expertly crafts a sense of place in late twentieth century Rome. With unexpected plot twists and no easy answers, Nothing Forgotten concludes with a satisfying mix of love, loss, pleasure, and pain.”

—BARBARA STARK NEMON, author of Even in Darkness

 

“Passionate, impulsive, mystical, Anna tells her tale of romance in Italy and the impossible choices made for love with the frank intimacy of a best friend. Consuming and thought-provoking; I couldn't put it down!”
—MICAH PERKS, author of What Becomes Us

 

 

NOTHING FORGOTTEN
By Jessica Levine
author of The Geometry of Love

In her second literary novel, NOTHING FORGOTTEN, (She Writes Press, publication date April 10, 2018), Jessica Levine revisits the archetypal story of a young woman visiting Italy—and being transformed.

Booklist named Levine’s first novel, The Geometry of Love, a Top 10 Women’s Fiction Title for 2015. In their starred review of the book, they said, “Julia’s emotions, insecurities, and pleasures are laid bare and recall Isadora Wing in Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying….An outstanding first novel.”

In NOTHING FORGOTTEN, Anna is reliving a tense argument with her husband when she receives an unexpected email from the Italian lover she knew decades before. As the episode returns to haunt her, her marriage is threatened, and the story moves back to her youth in Rome and Paris.

After graduating from college in 1979, Anna had fled her alcoholic mother and enabling father, determined to become a citizen of the world—to have lovers, to travel widely, to immerse herself in the rich history of literature and art, and to live a life of passion and freedom away from her painful childhood.

When she landed a job as an English teacher at an Italian language school, she began her affair with Sergio, the school administrator. Sergio was already engaged. Although Anna worried about her decision, she couldn’t let him go. Besides, she believed their relationship was temporary. But there was nothing temporary about the way she and Sergio felt for each other, and as Anna grew closer to him, she also became friends with his fiancée, for whom she genuinely cared. Then an unexpected pregnancy, an anonymous letter, and threatening relatives forced Anna to make choices—choices she now has the opportunity to reconsider.

NOTHING FORGOTTEN is a moving story about a mother's regret and an illicit love transcending time, space, and conventional morality.

JESSICA LEVINE is the author of The Geometry of Love (She Writes Press, 2014), chosen as a Top 10 Women’s Fiction Title for 2015 by the American Library Association’s Booklist, which called an “outstanding first novel” in their starred review.

Her essays, shorts stories, and poetry have appeared in many publications including The Southern Review and The Huffington Post. She has also translated several books from French and Italian into English. Jessica holds a Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of California at Berkeley, where she was a Mellon Fellow.
