He and Rachel Bowers, a high stakes trial attorney, are lovers--but their relationship has entered a rough patch. As always, Rachel is more conscious of where things stand than Jack. He is still hoping to write something to make her laugh. (Fat chance of that--Rachel reads government statistics for amusement.)The arrival of a visiting professor from Buenos Aires, with some odd ideas about Reality, inspires Jack to re-imagine the visitor as a new and improved Rachel--dark, warm, nervous and uncertain--in contrast to Rachels cool Scandinavian rationality. Not Jacks most promising literary effort. Who knows what might happen when an exotic beauty from the bottom of the world stirs up events in the prosaic City of Portland.
