Saturday evening: Cora Huebsch recently slept with Daniel for the first time and is now impatiently waiting for him to call her. That is the beginning of this story about love, sex and everyday vanities and forms the basis for telling the story of the encounter between Cora and Daniel in interlinked flashbacks and entertaining episodes. But, it also takes a couple of ironic pot-shots at the complex and sometimes complicated mechanisms of the relationships between women and men.
Making use of a variety of narrative stylistic devices, the story constantly drifts off into anecdotes told in loving, detailed fashion about the frequently comical diversions and confusion inevitably accompanying two people finding their way to one another. The main drift of the story is Cora waiting at the telephone in vain. Cora experiences an emotional roller-coaster ride that finally brings her to the insight that "he" is not going to call. Cora has coincidence to thank for the fact that she ends up in the arms of her lover this evening as well as the insight that all of the well-meaning tips, bits of advice and wisdom only stood in the way of her finding the man of her dreams.
