Provocative fiction about a forbidden love: a Lolita for our times.<P>Oliver Gold, the brilliant, ascetic writer and philosopher, has lived quietly and happily for eight years on the outskirts of London as a lodger in 12, Wagner Rise. His sudden decision to marry and move to America precipitates a crisis in this 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.<P>The cold and beautiful Catharine Cuffe, Olivers former student and a formidable philosopher herself, offers him a platonic marriage of convenience; Michal, Cuffes 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.
