This “delicious, sensual mystery” explores the dangerous psychological intensity between an intellectual, inhibited husband and his free-spirited wife (USA Today).
John Chambers is lying in bed, waiting for his wife to come home from a mysterious errand. Before he married Clara, he was devoted to Nietzsche and classical music, intensely cerebral, so attracted to self-denial that he even went through periods of refusing to speak and abstaining from sex. But now he has lost himself in this wild, impulsive woman—and he is passionately awaiting her return.
As evening passes into night, he reflects on the bond between them, experiences a bizarre Chinese-food delivery—and dips into Clara’s exceedingly candid diary—in “one of the most uninhibited and intensely sexy novels to appear in some time,” an erotically suspenseful tale that “exerts an almost hypnotic attraction” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
