[book moderately shelfworn, edges of covers soiled; jacket is scuffed and soiled, with a 1"x1-1/4" chunk missing at bottom front hinge]. "The story of a single day whose seemingly minor events shatter and transform the lives of four people: the Negro couple Benny and Althea Robinson, and the white couple David and Alice Marko, with whom, at varying levels of need, they come into contact. Before the day is over, each of them, using lust as 'false balm against the gray world,' will have been violated and revealed, to each other and to himself." The jacket blurb assures the potential reader that the book "is not about 'the Negro crisis' any more than it is about physical passion." Also according to the blurb, the book "has been scheduled for filming by Garrick Films"; this doesn't appear to have happened.
