From the Back Cover

The great ideal of the grand and lasting passion smiles down on the bumbling solitude of Sempe's lovers and mates who fight, scold, daydream, protect themselves with envelopes of self-importance. . . . He is the master of observed comic detail. . . .

--EDWARD KOREN, from the Introduction
