Eventually perhaps--perhaps even especially--Matisse. 2) "The Woman Who Walked on Water" (1996) - A beautifully crafted, dark fable, the story of a woman's search for meaning. 3) "Siam or The Woman Who Shot a Man: A Novel" (1999) - Nominated for the 2000 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. A haunting novel of intrigue and lost innocence set in Thailand during the onset of the Vietnam conflict. 4) "Limbo and Other Places I have Lived" (2002) - In her elegant and penetrating first collection of stories, Tuck offers a portrait of the subtle shifts that can render the accommodations we make to our lives or to our partners suddenly impossible. 5) "The News From Paraguay" (2004) - An historical epic that tells an unusual love story. A kaleidoscopic portrait of nineteenth-century Paraguay, a largely untouched wilderness where Europeans and North Americans intermingle with both the old Spanish aristocracy and native Guarani Indians, Winner of the 2004 National Book Award. 6) "Woman of Rome: A Life of Elsa Morante" (2008) - Wonderfully researched with the cooperation of the Morante Estate, filled with personal interviews, and written in graceful and succinct prose. "Woman of Rome" introduces the American reader to a woman of fierce intelligence, powerful imagination, and original talent. 7) "I Married You for Happiness" (2011) - Not only an elegant meditation on the theory of probability and how chance can affect both a life and one's consideration of the possibility of an afterlife. 8) :The House at Belle Fontaine" (2013) - These elegantly conceived, intimate stories span the better part of the twentieth century and almost every continent, revealing apprehensions, passions, secrets and tragedies among lovers, spouses, landlords and tenants, and lifelong friends. 9) "The Double Life of Liliane" (2015) - Her most autobiographical novel to date, an intimate and poignant coming-of-age portrait of the writer as a young woman. 10) "Sisters" (2018) - A seductive short novel of secrecy, jealousy, and desire in a new marriage from its stirring inception through its provocative conclusion.
