From the jacket- "Mr. Fisher's novel is a frank and important social document in which the charm of an idyllic love story of a sane man and woman contrasts with the difficulties of other characters. There is a large and varied gallery of people, most of them defeated by life, full of self-pity and egoism, seeking some cure for mental and emotional strain."
