Peter and Rebecca Harris: midforties denizens of Manhattan's SoHo, nearing the apogee of committed careers in the arts. With a spacious loft, a college-age daughter in Boston, and lively friends, they are admirable, enviable contemporary urbanites. Then Rebecca's much younger brother shows up. Ethan is beautiful, beguiling and wayward. And in his presence Peter finds himself questioning his entire carefully constructed world. (Bestseller).
