"The time is 1962, and the place is a fiefdom of Camelot called Greenwood, Connecticut. Jerry Conant and Sally Mathias are in love and want to get married, though they are already married to others. A diadem of five symmetrical chapters describes the course of their affair as it flickers off and on through the long summer, in an atmosphere of moral twilight. For this is, as the hero observes, 'the twilight of the old morality, and there's just enough to torment us, and not enough to hold us in.'"; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
