Product description

Henry Fairfax's life is one of orderly routine: accounting and management by day, the writing of radio plays by night, and a circle of friends. But only a few years ago he had lived through a painful divorce after nine years. And very early in the narrative, surprised by a sudden attack in the night, Fairfax stops a would-be mugger with a heavy right-hand blow. But what is he to think when Laura, now an independent, successful businesswoman, suggests that they marry again? They had parted loathing each other. And yet it possible that Henry's heart, like the mugger, may surprise him. Stanley Middleton's novel treats once more of the choices that seemingly comfortable people have to make. The issues he raises speak to the human condition, and make moving drama of our daily lives.
