In a dreamlike setting, this surreal book explores the interaction and emotions of a man, his wife and a young woman caught in a love triangle. In this deeply moving love story, the characters travel back and forth in time, each expressing their experience and singular perception of particular events. Through their encounter, from which they cannot escape, they learn about each other as they convey their most intimate thoughts and feelings, shedding all artifice in the process. The story concerns a modern, self-assured and successful young couple who take personal risks, making promises of love and good behaviour to each other. The game of their life is full of exciting challenges and opportunities but, as in all games, there are rules which, when broken, ensure there are no clear-cut winners or losers.
