First published three decades ago, and hailed as “one of the best books of the year” by the New York Times, here is the classic novel that first established Scott Spencer as “the contemporary American master of the love story”(Publishers Weekly), now newly reissued

When I was seventeen and in full obedience to my heart’s most urgent commands, I stepped far from the pathway of normal life and in a moment’s time ruined everything I loved—I loved so deeply, and when the love was interrupted, when the incorporeal body of love shrank back in terror and my own body was locked away, it was hard for others to believe that a life so new could suffer so irrevocably.”

So begins Scott Spencer’s classic tale of passion and obsession—the riveting, compulsively readable, and ferociously sexual story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield.

David and Jade’s lives are consumed with each other; their affinity, their desire, their sexuality taking them into a dizzying world darker and more complex than they understand. When Jade’s father banishes him from the house, David fantasizes a way back to Jade—a plan with devastating consequences. What ultimately unfolds is a nightmare, a tragic pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to David: his endless love for Jade and her family.

Scott Spencer is the author of seven previous novels. He has written for Rolling Stone, the New York Times, The New Yorker, GQ, and Harper’s, and he has taught fiction writing at Columbia University, The University of Iowa, and Williams College. He lives in Rhinebeck, NY.

“The sensations aroused are akin to the legendary thrill of riding a roller-coaster. The speed, the fear, the anticipation sharpen the pleasure of walking quietly on solid ground.” -Washington Post
“Scott Spencer writes about love’s tenacity with such passionate intensity that I was for a time obliged to suspend all possibility of disbelief. From his remarkable opening sentence he had me in thrall.” -Newsweek
“He finds perfect pitch on the first page and never lets go.” -Atlantic Monthly
