(From the publisher):
ďYou can only be happy with your first woman or with your last,Ē announces Nathanís father, thus summarizing the seducerís dilemma. Nathan too is a seducer, albeit in different times. An editor for a Viennese newspaper, he maintains an emancipated marriage and an equally emancipated affair, paying frequent visits to his psychotherapist. Whereas Nathanís father sought happiness in women and Nathanís mother found unhappiness in men, Nathan intends to do everything quite differently. But what is he doing differently? Nothing.
