If civilisation seemed in irreversible decline, how would men and women perceive it? Deal with it? Be rescued from it?
The story centres on two key characters: Kim Barnes, a gifted blues singer wrestling with an intense conflict between musical purity and her envy of a former friend; and Frank McCombie, an intelligent and educated man who shuns the world and lives rough. Gradually revealed are hidden connections between these and other characters through their strivings for success and meaning.
