KIRKUS REVIEW

Anne Travers, 47, although she can pass for 29, a successful writer, and happily married to Philip, 65, whose age is ""apparent... in the bedroom"" only, finds that she needs a lover and selects South American Miguel Rojas, a co-pupil at the Berlitz school where he eyes her appreciatively. After a brief overture in pidgin Spanish and pidgin English, they arrange a hotel rendezvous and she finds that her Latin lover is not lousy but muy good. But--- they need a ""nido de amor"" and, insisting on discretion (her husband, his wife, leering elevator men, etc.) they find it difficult to come by until their understanding spos: collaborate to provide them with a ""place to meet"".... Miss Orr is anything but discreet, and her candor runs to all kinds of gynecological and sexual intimacies which, while designed to arouse-- may succeed- indignation.
