The book follows an older professor whose wife has recently died. In Venice he meets a young Irish film star who is in an on-and-off-again relationship with a married man. She is staying in the apartment of her friend, which is for sale. As they explore Venice, their intimacy intensifies. In starkly personal interchanges, she and he come to new understandings about endings and beginning. When she suddenly leaves, he decides to buy the apartment. Fifteen years later, the professor is considering selling the apartment. By chance he meets a young woman who is traveling with her fifteen-year-old son. She has learned her husband has been unfaithful and wants a divorce. As he shows them Venice, an intense closeness develops that he knows must end. In their discussions, the professor comes fully to understand that owning the apartment and Venice are for him a powerful metaphor for life, its struggle against decay, and its striving for new beginnings
