Abstract:

In the summer of 1957, Frances and Bernard meet at a writers' colony. She finds him faintly ridiculous, but talented. He sees her as aloof, but intriguing. Afterwards, he sends her a letter. Soon they are engaged in the kind of fast, deep connection that can take over -- and change the course of -- our lives.
