Summary, etc.:
The year is 1970, and it's a long, hot summer. In a castle on a mountainside in Italy, half a dozen young lives are afloat on a sea of change, trapped inside the history of the sexual revolution. The girls are acting like boys, the boys are going on acting like boys, and Keith Nearing-twenty years old, a literature student all clogged up with the English novel-is struggling to twist feminism and women's ascendancy toward his own ends.
