This volume of short stories discusses the narrator’s loves over seventeen-odd years. From being a timid lover who marries his first girlfriend and eventually divorces her, the hero becomes a man of experience who nevertheless remains incapable of maintaining a long-term, satisfying relationship with a woman. With aloofness and in a kind of caricature, Viewegh has his sexually and socially successful hero consider the causes of his feeling out of place and his frustration, without granting him the courage to leave the vicious circle of deceptive ‘erotic abundance’.
