AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Alex and Andrew are friends. And Barbara…Barbara is a goddess. Here is the eternal triangle, the story of three people locked in an unhappy tangle of emotions, none able to articulate the precise quality of their longing and dissatisfaction. In St John’s hands, what is commonplace is transformed and transcendent.' (From Text Publishing's website.)
