Larry Mann, a lonely old lodger in a north London boarding house, is delighted when Amanda moves in downstairs. Desperate for companionship, he brings her gifts, fixes her drinks--makes her want to like him. Amanda is too kind-hearted to hurt Larry's feelings. And when Amanda's lover begins to spend long and passionate weekends with her, Larry becomes troubled and afraid--afraid of losing her, afraid of his own dark past. Martin's Press.
