Edward Johnson has, from the outside, a perfect life. Great job, wonderful wife. Then one day he falls in love for the first time--with Alec, the teenaged son of the new neighbours--and his world falls apart.
"Both a haunting tale of sexual obsession and a stunning portrait of an ordinary man caught up in the throes of an illicit love and teetering on the brink of self-destruction, told with pinpoint psychological insight and mouth-watering prose, this is a splendid example of the storyteller's art, reminiscent of James Baldwin."
