KIRKUS REVIEW

A tragic love story of a man who betrays love for pride. A subtle characterization of a certain type of man, who, confronted with real love, is not strong enough to face the world with that if it means losing wealth and position. There is a certain excitement in the writing -- a callous exposure of charm overlaying brutal virility -- the bittersweet struggle between man and woman -- one or two rather graphic scenes (warning for ultra-conservatives) --controversial viewpoint. A first novel that shows more than promise, by a fairly well known short story writer.
