Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
In self-imposed exile in an ancient Flemish city, an embittered 33-year-old language tutor, Edward Manners, falls in love with his alluring 17-year-old pupil, Luc Altidore. As Edward pursues the elusive object of his infatuation--and plunges into affairs with two other men--this book interweaves past and present, history and memory, into a tapestry of unfulfillable desire.
"You could read this novel as a miniature REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST. Or as an expanded DEATH IN VENICE...or as a homosexual LOLITA....It is an immense pleasure to read..."
Gabriele Annan, New York Review of Books, 11/03/1994Review:
"[M]oves beyond provincial gay territory to the full-fledged European novel."
