Set in the Hudson Valley Country, north of New York City,
this novel tells the story of the linked fates of the Van Brunt and
Van Wart families. These have come down in modern times to Walter
Van Brunt, a dreamer addled by drink and dope who loses both feet
in motorbike accidents and who is haunted by vices from the past,
and Depeyster Van Wart, a conservative manufacturer, hanging on to
ancestral memories.
