"The corruption and murder of innocence. The Youth whose Fate it was to know the full terror of the world in a single bitter season." -- Gore Vidal.
Peters' second novel focuses on the tumultuous adolescence of Matthew Cameron. As Gore Vidal noted, the first third of this book lays out the many betrayals experienced by young Matthew. The middle third lays out the story of Matthew's relationship with Michel, and the final third follows the rapid disintegration of Matthew's world.
