Copenhagen. A city of bars, brothels and the good life. For some, a life bordering on the hysteria, boredom and spiritual bankruptcy. Martin Finch, an aspiring writer, returns to this. Here is Fritz, the old friend who runs an unsuccessful literary magazine. Here is Frank, Anita's smooth and heartless lover. Finally, here is Lulu, who becomes Martin's mistress.
The brittle, feverish surface of life is shattered when Anita takes a trip too many and commits suicide, and martin releases upon Frank al his pent-up fury and frustration.
A successor to the best-selling YOUNG LOVE, this is a vital novel of today, epitomizing the younger generation's moral and social dilemma.
