Abstract:

Vidar Wenge, a journalist who considers himself progressive and humane, hopes a surprise second honeymoon with his wife of thirteen years will put the spark back in their marriage, not realizing that Jo Wenge has begun to despair of their orderly yet passionless life together. When Vidar makes a pass intended to echo their adolescent courtship, Jo recoils, starting him on a rising spiral of anxiety. Yet she suspends her pessimism shortly thereafter and attempts to share her heretofore hidden erotic capacity with him, a revelation that both thrills and profoundly distrubs him. They pursue searing sensual explorations with each other, as well as with former lovers who appear at the hotel. So begins a halting, unsynchronized process of peeling away masks and conventions, the deadening effects of a comfortable life.
