Hayes’s masterpiece is an exquisite depiction of a doomed love affair set in noirish, 1950s New York.In a Manhattan bar, a middle-aged man tells a pretty girl a story: of how he fell into a relationship with a lonely young divorcee; of how one night she was offered a thousand dollars to sleep with a stranger; and of how he and she would subsequently betray each other in turn. In Alfred Hayes’s exquisite novella, love – in all its bewildering turns of longing, elation, heartbreak and regret – is dissected with unforgettable honesty and heartbreaking clarity.
