Abstract:

"In the hilarious beginning to this comic novel, Tristan meets divorcee Maura Hawkins at a nudist meeting and hastily falls in love with her. Tristan is a professor at a small midwest university; he has recently been released from a mental asylum, to which obviously (as he tells us) he was admitted unfairly.
