Van Veen, der überaus virile Sohn einer sehr wohlhabenden und erotisch leicht derangierten Familie, beschreibt in seinen Memoiren seine lebenslange Liebe zu der schönen Ada - eine Beziehung, die einen Aspekt besitzt, den das Gesetz verbietet. Er ist vierzehn, Ada zwölf, als im arkadischen Ardis corridor die Gefühle der beiden erwachen und Lucette,Adas jüngere Schwester, störende Zeugin ihrer ersten Liebesbegegnungen wird. Auf eine glühende Kindheitsromanze und Jahre der im verborgenen blühenden Leidenschaft folgt die erste Trennung, als Van erfährt, daß das von ihm entfachte Feuer auch für andere brennt. Nach Jahren ist ihnen ein glückliches Wiedersehen in 'Manhattan' beschieden, aber auch neue Trennung, da der Vater die frevelhafte Beziehung entdeckt und verurteilt. Van führt das Doppelleben des Schriftstellers und Lebemannes und erstickt die Sehnsucht nach Ada. Aber der ihm verfallenen Lucette verweigert er sich, und sie geht an ihm zugrunde. Siebzehn Jahre lang muß Van warten, ehe er sich wieder mit Ada vereint sieht.

Mrs. Milton White says she never met a perfect person, but she's heard enough about one . . her husband's first wife. " 31 "It would be more uncomfortable to be married to the perfect wife," declared Mr. Harrison, with a sudden and inexplicable warmth. When tea was over Anne insisted on washing the dishes, although Mr. Harrison assured her that there were enough in the house to do for weeks yet. She would dearly have loved to sweep the floor also, but no broom was visible and she did not like to ask where it was for fear there wasn't one at all.
