And now hes too ashamed to look into the eyes of the woman he loves more than life itself--ever again.Quixotic is a quirky tale of lost love that unfolds in the year leading up to 9/11.

In the spring of 2000, a mega midlife crisis launches a knight errant on a daunting quest with fiasco written all over it. Professor Michael Lex yanks up his stateside life by the roots and jets to Frankfurt to make amends to the distinguished journalist Johanna von Kleist.

What does a man say to the jilted beauty to explain away several lifetimes of pin-drop silence?Spoken words fail him, so the aspiring novelist writes them. As the erstwhile lovers get reacquainted ever so gingerly, he labors over two manuscripts. The first recounts what happens in Frankfurt in 1969 when a disaffected GI working undercover for US Army Intelligence falls madly in love with an emerald-eyed pacifist with hip-length raven hair.

The second narrates the twists and turns leading up to a soul-searing night in Hamburg in 1970. In one calamitous hour, Michael learns more about himself than he ever wanted to know, but it takes him thirty years and two manuscripts to confess it to Johanna.The core of the novel is a morality play in which a good man does his best to do good but, well, hes only human . . . and a walking, talking paradox at that. He preaches Thou shalt not harm but lies and spies for the US Army. He means it when he says, I love you, sweetness.

See you tomorrow, but tomorrow stretches into decades. The most disturbing paradox of all lies buried in his hardened heart under layer upon layer of shame.
