Max Frisch's candid story of his affair with a young woman illuminates a lifetime of relationships.

Casting himself as both subject and observer, Frisch reflects on his marriages, children, friendships, and careers; a holiday weekend in Long Island is a trigger to recount and question events and aspects of his own life, along with creeping fears of mortality. He paints a bittersweet portrait that is sometimes painful and sometimes humorous, but always affecting. Emotionally raw and formally innovative, Frischs novel collapses the distinction between art and life, but leaves the reader with a richer understanding of both.
