Through their flashes of insight and recollection, we see Roberts parents, a deeply sensitive, passionate Frenchwoman and a strong, rational surgeon, whose relationship borders on sadomasochism- his friend Flavia, an opera singer who loves him- and Daniel, a middle-aged stockbroker tortured by his impotence and his love for a beautiful young man with aspirations to the priesthood.

Robert himself, gentle and somewhat awkward, is transported to the shadowy nocturnal world of the Observatory Gardens, where men cruise for anonymous sex, and to more emotionally charged nights spent in Rome with Johnny, a passionate former lover for whom sex and salvation are inseparably linked.Outstanding prose, unerring candor, and a sense of the comic all his own distinguish Osborns exploration of the delicate web of emotions that connect people.

With particular deftness he portrays the dramatic world of homosexual encounters, and never before has sexual love between men been portrayed with such compelling understanding.
