Emotional conflict of two dissimilar characters underscored by sex antagonism and presented with minute detail of times both good and bad. Now and then it drags a bit and the characters never quite come to life. But it is a story that will doubtless strike a chord of familiarity in many quarters -- one passport to readability....A first person story which analyzes the lack of success a man has with the woman he loves, a woman who sets the rules of his wooing. The marriage crashes -- but the reason is clear. Not first rate, but better than average.
