Synopsis: A brilliant, brutally honest novel about love in its many forms: psychological, romantic, carnal, obsessive, all as seen through a psychoanalyst who delves into the sexual preoccupations of his clients.

From Library Journal: In this ambiguously titled novel Dr. Melville tries to help his patients sort out their unfulfilled yearnings, but he too is consumed with desire. From a psychiatrist-author one might expect subtle analysis of character and motivation, and this is certainly what Wheelis provides. His purpose is to examine different varieties of love and to study the cycle in which frustrated desire turns to despair and despair fans more intense desire. Such analysis is incisive, but some readers may find the plot too sparse. In fact, Wheelis divides his novel into two distinct sections"Story" and "Meditation." He suggests that readers who want to think for themselves should read only the first part, those who are tired of fictions should read only the second, and those who are equally interested in both sections should read chapters alternately from each. For larger collections. Albert E. Wilhelm, English Dept., Tennessee Technological Univ., Cookeville
