Summary Alex is a cold, distant, fiercely intellectual research psychiatrist from New York, teaching in Vienna. Milena, an Army brat, has wandered back through the countries she was raised in to find herself there, too. They meet at a party, are immediately attracted to each other, and fall quickly into a sexually obsessive relationship. Milena has a husband across the border named Stefan, and a drinking problem. This does not make Alex very happy. Their relationship becomes a fight for power, waged with manipulation, drugs, despair, need, and lust, and it is never clear if there is any real 'winner'.
