View all copies of this ISBN edition:

An American Romance, Hans Koning’s second novel, was originally published in 1960 by Simon and Schuster. It is a story of love and marriage—and the devastating difference between the two conditions. Two attractive young people marry within three weeks of their first meeting, and their early days are spent in isolated, intense excitement. For Philip, Ann is miraculous, the woman of his dreams. But he, like many of his time and place, has not learned to live with fulfillment. Happiness to him lies in its pursuit; there is no place for Tristan and Isolde in a two-room apartment. What happens to Philip and Ann is told in a haunting novel that looks deep into the natures of men and women. Here is the dichotomy of male and female caught in the intimate transcript of one couple’s progress in and out of love.

About the Author:

Hans Koning is a prolific and critically acclaimed author who has served as a staff reporter for the New Yorker and Atlantic Monthly. In addition, he has published 13 novels, several of which have been made into movies, 10 non-fiction books, three plays, two translations, and a children’s book. Koning’s newest novel, Zeeland, or Elective Concurrences, has also been published by NewSouth Books.

From Library Journal:

Released in 1958 and 1960, respectively, these are Koning's first and second novels. Both illustrate misguided relationships: as the title indicates, The Affair concerns the budding-and fleeting-passion between two lovers, while the latter book takes the next step: a couple marry after a three-week courtship only to find that the thrill of the chase is more satisfying than the actual catch. NewSouth is reprinting all of Koning's novels, so look for future titles in this series.
