“That object on which the unfocused emotions of the deprived and lonely fasten obsessively is the subject of [this book]. In no case can the object sustain the weight of expectation: the lover eludes commitment, the longed for party is a drunken disappointment, the coveted piece of furniture in the shop window is a dab mistake in the front room, the treasured mystery gift is the result of a postal error.” (Dust jacket).
