This tame tale of wild life opens with Alexandra, happily married to her third husband, learning of the mysterious death of her firstfound with her picture in his pocket. The cause of death and the significance of the photo are never explained, but then, in the prolonged flashback that follows, neither is the reason why Alexa middle-class, refined, abstemious art studentmarried Stevie, the lower-class, pill-popping, chauvinist rock singer. She was studying at Oxford in the 1960s when his band performed there. He looked very sexy on stage, and after his few swipes at courtship, the impressionable girl quit school, became his submissive clothes horse, and accommodated his druggie, groupie-besieged, self-centered world. A few months later, during his group's U.S. tour (girlfriends in tow), Alex walked out of Stevie's life, apparently having learned little from the experience. Not much is ever revealed to the reader either; the two-dimensional characters and unconvincing plot are not even redeemed by racy details. February 6
