From the publisher:
By night the glittering world of Times Square, cinemas, clubs and the brittle, played-out demi-monde by day a wasteland of hollow men, lonely apartments and empty morning coffee stands Robert Holton has just returned from the torment and strife of war in Europe and settled in a solitary existence working for a New York stockbroking business The haunting memories of nights of love spent in Florence are suppressed as he struggles to succeed in an arid city And when Carla turns up unexpectedly from his more passionate past, Robert finds he must choose between the fixed path of money-making and dull conventionality and the fraught, uncertain path of love and freedom

Gore Vidal (1925--2012) was an American writer and public intellectual known for his epigrammatic wit, erudition, and patrician manner Vidal was bisexual, and in his novels and essays interrogated the social and cultural sexual norms he perceived as driving American life Beyond literature, Vidal was heavily involved in politics He twice sought officeâ€"unsuccessfullyâ€"as a Democratic Party candidate, first in 1960 to the US House of Representatives (for New York), and later in 1982 to the US Senate (for California) 216 pp.
