Show Summary Details


The three previous chapters constitute the introduction to The Meeting Place. Illustrating the description of the book in the previous chapter, this chapter plunges the reader into the midst of an erotic situation and a first person narrative: a man waiting for his lover to arrive. As she fails to arrive on time, the distinction between a chance encounter and a scheduled meeting emerges.
