A cult classic of Italian literature published in English for the first time.
Set towards the end of the Sixties, the story follows Leo Gazzara to Rome where he quickly finds himself unemployed and alone. He spends his days in an alcoholic haze, dipping in and out of hotels, bars, romances and the homes of wealthy friends.
On his thirtieth birthday, Leo meets a young woman who is both fragile and seductive. They spend the evening driving around the city, talking, drinking until the dawn and sharing breakfast. A whirlwind romance unfolds, as Leo falls in love and loses everything.
