Takes place before WWII, and is the story of an intelect who falls in love with the dim girl whom he used to play with as a child. All of the innocence themes that you're used to, the intellectual friends are all jerks and self important, the family of the girl are simple and compassionate. The thing that makes this great though is Singer, I picture him with a sad clown face, making us laugh and feel heartbroken within the same sentence.
