When Rebecca returns from an unexpected overseas trip, Benjamin's unreasoning jealousy over her friendship with another boy casts a shadow on their budding relationship. A series of rashly imprudent decisions abetted by Deighland and the model leave Ben feeling guilty and angry. At an ill-fated summer barbeque, he wrongly explodes at Rebecca and soon plunges headlong into a reckless self-destructive downward spiral, culminating in a horrific confrontation with Anthea Montague that brings his life crashing down in ruins.
Against the background of a vanished period in American history, Stainer offers a bittersweet nostalgic trip back to a less complex world, during a time of incautious excesses that, while deceptively fun and carefree, in due course forced many unwary youngsters like Benjamin Steiner to learn some necessary - but terribly painful - lessons about growing up.

Very good listen
A great insight in to what life would've been like as a young Jewish male trying to find his way in the gentile world of that era. I'm a sap and love all tied-up happy endings; so even though I didn't get the outcome of my desire, I like that the ending left open possibilities. Great job Ms Woulff.
