This is a story of impulse and paralysis, empty marriages, lovers and gambling; of adult children and their parents; of poetry and prostitution; psychiatry and the law and is above all a novel that speaks about obsessive and redemptive love. It is told by seven different narrators whose lives are entangled in unexpected ways.
After years of unrequited love, a lonely schoolteacher takes matters into his own hands to win back a woman he lost long ago, and thereby triggers a chain of events that neither he nor his psychiatrist could have anticipated. See on E-Library
