  §  Synopsis “It really did happen in St Petersburg on one of those warm white nights in summer, although it is perfectly possible that all this happened on a horribly rainy evening in November. The heroes of this story are young, although, perhaps, they are getting on for forty. We are reliably informed that he and she have never met before, though it is entirely likely that their relationship has been going on for some time. But it is absolutely clear—as the author insists—that this is a story about love.”
