Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie


Virginia Miner a fifty something unmarried tenured professor is in London to work on her new book about children s folk rhymes Despite carrying a U S passport Vinnie feels essentially English and rather looks down on her fellow Americans But in spite of that she is drawn into a mortifying and oddly satisfying affair with an Oklahoman tourist who dresses more Bronco Billy than Beau Brummel .

Also in London is Vinnie s colleague Fred Turner a handsome flat broke newly separated and thoroughly miserable young man trying to focus on his own research Instead he is distracted by a beautiful and unpredictable English actress and the world she belongs to .

Both American both abroad and both achingly lonely Vinnie and Fred play out their confused alienation and dizzying romantic liaisons in Alison Lurie s Pulitzer Prize winning novel Smartly written poignant and witty i Foreign Affairs i remains an enduring comic masterpiece
