  • "Een oude Ierse acteur denkt met weemoed en schuld terug aan de zomerliefde die hij als 15-jarige had met de moeder van zijn beste vriend."

  • "Is there any difference between memory and invention? The question haunts Alexander Cleave, an actor in the twilight of his career and his life, as he plumbs the memories of his first - perhaps only - love, and of his daughter lost to a kind of madness of mind and heart that he can only fail to understand. When his dormant career is suddenly revived, Cleave's young leading lady unwittingly gives him the opportunity to see that chasm with aching clarity."
  • ""Alexander Clave es un viejo actor de teatro que recuerda su fugaz e intenso primer amor. Un rodaje cinematográfico le llevará a intimar con una joven y popular actriz cuya vida se ha asomado al abismo y al inesperado hallazgo de respuestas acerca del destino final de las mujeres que marcaron a fuego su vida"--Page 4 of cover."
  • "An actor in the twilight of his career reflects on a poignant first love affair at the age of fifteen with his best friend's mother and inexplicably lands a role opposite a famous but fragile actress who helps him come to an astonishing realization."
  • "'Billy Gray was my best friend and I fell in love with his mother.' Alexander Cleave, an actor who thinks his best days are behind him, remembers his first unlikely affair as a teenage boy in a small town in 1950s Ireland: the illicit meetings in a rundown cottage outside town, assignations in the back of his lover's car on sunny morning and rain-soaked afternoons. And with these early memories comes something sharper and much darker - the more recent recollection of the actor's own daughter's suicide ten years before."
