A young Cuban woman passes her nights dancing in a seedy Florida strip club; a Russian orphan loses everything, then builds a new and prosperous life for himself in New York; a woman struggles to maintain her dignity and hope after a life-changing accident—these are the three members of the troika whose story is told in this dazzling literary debut.
Their lives unexpectedly intertwined, Perla, Julian and Sophie discover a world—a way of life—that forces them to challenge their definitions of commitment, love and trust, a world that heals old wounds and inspires them to transform tragedy into beauty.
“What a great gallop through the landscape of the human heart, what a brilliant, astonishing modern love story, what a beautiful pair of heroines, what an amazing journey from the plantains of Little Havana and a Fort Lauderdale strip club to Fifth Avenue and East Hampton, what a ride to a complex and satisfying redemption, what a glorious testimony to the way damage can become a lovely destiny, what a book!”—*Susan CheeverFrom Booklist

Troika opens in a strip club, an unlikely setting for a love story. Author Pelzman plays with reader expectations throughout his debut novel, delaying the introduction of the third member of his love triangle until deep into the book. The payoff is significant and surprising. Pelzman inhabits each of these characters with an intimate first person, and each point of view sounds authentic, as well as distinct from the others. The front story moves from seedy south Florida to gilded Manhattan, with occasional glimpses into the protagonist Julian’s violent Russian upbringing. Although Julian is the romantic fulcrum of the novel, his two love interests emerge as more compelling characters. Pelzman draws Perla, a Cuban American dancer, particularly tenderly, though her introspection grows repetitive and her reactions can be cartoonish. The novel’s strongest passages view love and longing through a hopeful lens, even amidst tragedy: “During these fleeting moments of divine inspiration, I believe that somehow I’m going to turn this catastrophe into something spectacular, something joyous and unexpected.” --Kevin Clouther --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
