"In the autumn, Molkho's wife dies. The years of his loving attention are ended. But his newfound freedom is filled with the erotic fantasies of a man who must fall in love. Winter sees him away to the operas of Berlin and a comic tryst with a legal adviser who has a sprained ankle. Spring takes him to Galilee and an underage Indian girl. Jerusalem in the summer present him with an offer from an old classmate to seduce his infertile wife. And the next autumn it is Nina (if only they spoke the same language!), whose yearning for her Russian home leads Molkho back to life."--BOOK JACKET.

I was very involved with this story because of Yehoshua's writing. I was not able to figure out all the metaphors, but found the content very interesting.
