His sudden decision to marry and move to America precipitates a crisis in his household of women, all of whom owe fierce, idiosyncratic allegiance to Oliver, and want to save him and their world from an unsuitable, inexplicable match.

The cold and beautiful Catharine, Olivers former student and a formidable philosopher herself, offers him a Platonic marriage of convenience. Michal, Catharines lover, is a bitter, divorced mother who would do almost anything to keep Oliver in the house, as would her mother, Margot, a faded literary hostess who is only a few years Olivers senior. Britte, the Austrian Amazon housekeeper, harbors a yearning for Oliver that verges on madness. But only Bobs, Michals twelve-year-old daughter who has been Olivers constant companion, knows his dangerous secret: it is from her that Oliver attempts to flee.
