Set in 1969 London, this is the story of the love affair of Theresa Cerutti, a widowed American anthropologist, and Ewen McLeod, a Scottish geologist who meet in the British Museum. The novel also tells the intertwining tales of the couple's diverse cast of friends -- from a gay British aristocrat to a six-foot-tall Dinka Jesuit - all of whom have had close encounters with death and all of whom choose to celebrate life.
