A deftly, delicately handled story of a happy-unhappy love affair as Stella, who worked in a publishing house, and Earl, an engineer, decide to live together to cancel out their loneliness. Temperamentally antithetic, Stella is haphazard, impractical, and very untidy, while Earl is neat, methodical and precise, and these differences create tensions, draw them apart. And so Earl leaves New York to take a job out west, while Stella, deliberately, has a baby. Earl returns after two years, and after much indecision, goes to see Stella- and the baby of which he knows nothing, and they stay on together... The light, bright touch here, the sentiment which is casual but appealing, make this just right- particularly for women.
