Description

A stormy tale of obsessionthis is a haunting portrayal of a man broken by passion (Library Journal).

Dr. Edward Haggard is a lonely, pain-racked romantic, standing at the window of his house on the edge of a cliff, watching as the clouds of war draw near, and reflecting on the nature of love, death, medicine, warbut most of all on the wife of the senior pathologist, and the few brief months of bliss they shared.

Shortly after the outbreak of World War II, a fighter pilot appears in Dr. Haggards surgery, reawakening memories of the single grand passion of Haggards life. For this young man is the son of the woman Haggard loved, and as the doctor becomes more and more intrigued by the bizarre changes occurring in his new patients body, his old passion gives way to a fresh one, a passion altogether odder, and darker, than the first.

In true gothic fashion, Patrick McGrath brings to his narration of a doomed love affair and bizarre aftermath an acute erotic intensity, portraying a man whose disease is passiondisease that can exalt a man, but can also destroy him.
