"Paul's loves remain as consuming and covetous throughout his life as they were in adolescence. Whether in southern Italy, where as a boy he has a crush on his parents' cabinetmaker; or on a snowbound campus in New England, where his enduring passion for a girl he'll meet again and again over the years is counterpointed by anonymous encounters with other men; or on a tennis court in Central Park; or on a sidewalk in early spring in New York, his attachments are ungraspable, transient, and forever underwritten by raw desire -- not for just one person's body but, inevitably, for someone else's as well. Ahead of every step Paul takes, his hopes, denials, fears, and regrets are always ready to lay their traps. Yet the dream of love lingers. We may not know what we want. We may remain enigmas to ourselves and to others. But sooner or later we discover who we've always known."--
