Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Released in 1958 and 1960, respectively, these are Koning's first and second novels. Both illustrate misguided relationships: as the title indicates, The Affair concerns the budding-and fleeting-passion between two lovers, while the latter book takes the next step: a couple marry after a three-week courtship only to find that the thrill of the chase is more satisfying than the actual catch. NewSouth is reprinting all of Koning's novels, so look for future titles in this series. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
