A sad and poignant story. However, like other books by Berger, the theory is better than the practice.

This is a story of a wedding such as could only take place at the end of our century. Berger with his inimitable clarity and poetic intensity gives the reader insight into the sexual reality of late twentieth century love.

This is one of the those great novel that, by itself make learning to read the most important thing we learn. The story is told with such respect for characters that it is difficult not to be highly affect by the reading. The journey this book takes the reader on is pure pleasure.
