KIRKUS REVIEW

With a continental worldliness and inevitability, the odd and poignant story of as immediate, obsessive and last love. Told in the first person by the man, a journalist of escaping from Europe's madness, here is his meeting with Edith, a dancer half his age, Edith who attracts him, devils him, haunts him...whom he avoids during the crossing to America, when he reluctantly stays with when they reach New York, until a heart attack and the doctor's prohibitions of further relations drives her away....He marries a pleasant, elder widow, to ensure his escape from Edith and then Edith reappears, and deliberately, indifferent to death, he goes back to her and the relationship which kills him....A blend of the sentimental and the sophisticated which is subtly attractive. Not a book for the average public.
