In a Manhattan bar during the 1940s a middle-aged man tells a young stranger the story of his last love affair: a relationship full of misplaced lust and misunderstood emotion, with the couple by turns erratic, depressed and dysfunctional. Seemingly about to break up altogether, its dynamics were, he tells, thrown into relief by the intervention of an unscrupulous millionaire. The ensuing turmoil the narrator describes will be recognizable to anyone who has fallen in and then out of love. The novel is as much an indictment of the emotion as an elegy to it, an examination of heartbreak rather than the heart.
