Park, NSWWhile relaxing on a crowded beach with his friend, a random encounter finds Sean in the presence of a complete stranger named Geneva, a free-spirited young woman whom had a rare and irresistible quality--an unpracticed sensuality, a sex-appeal as natural as her green eyes.From this purely chance meeting, Sean and Geneva soon find themselves plunged into an insatiable passion for one another.Blinded by sexual need and love, and his reason abandoned, Seans hitherto uneventful life becomes a series of both real and psychological adventures as he tries to comprehend the capricious, contradictory, and oftentimes manic nature of his singular fixation--Geneva.Written with a nimble and clear prose, with each chapter amounting in itself to a short story which nevertheless keeps the logic of the narrative moving apace, this novel frankly explores the tenderness, cruelty, affection, jealousy, compassion, rivalry--and the humor of the idiocy and folly--which added together constitute the enduring mystery known as love.In the end, Dancing Upon the Shore (the title is taken from the lyric poem That Crazed Girl by W. B. Yeats) is a memorably strange love story.In the end, Dancing Upon the Shore (the title is taken from the lyric poem That Crazed Girl by W. B. Yeats) is a memorably strange love story.
