And, in the heat and dust of an Indian summer, even people are not very different after all

True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of seventeen, how can you expect ever to recover from the passionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping?"--Page 4 of cover
