"Each woman he came to love was an alluring interpretative problem, an erotic and analytic challenge, a presence that fired his imagination. They came from the Greenwich Village of the 1920s, from his own upper middle class world of privilege, from New York's working class, from the high reaches of literary New York, and from the workaday world of Talcottville in upper New York State." "Wilson's Rabelaisian passions, ardors, and vulnerabilities, complicated by his ideas about love and sex, and marriage, are the ingredients of a story quite singular in modern American culture, wonderfully told in this portrait."--Jacket.
