The lead character, George, a married 45 year old man with two kids, is typical of the lead characters that dominate Sloan Wilson's books and our lead character is about to enter a mid-life crisis of sorts, as he meets a young 17 year old girl named Charlotte whose mother he jilted 25 years before, to his lasting regret, only to lose her (the mother), to an alcoholic playwright who is about to take up a new position in the collage where George is vice-president. George begins to take unnecessary risks in his life as he gets involved with Charlotte, who makes a mockery of his existence and destroys his complacency, leaving him to reassess his life. --Bernard J.
