Foreign Affairs

Annotation
Foreign Affairs chronicles the romantic adventures of two Americans in London. Vinnie Miner, a lonely middle-aged professor of literature, finds love and erotic confidence with Chuck, an engineer from Tulsa who dresses like a cowboy and at first represents everything she doesn't like about America. Alternating chapters tell the story of young, handsome, and unhappy Professor Fred Turner, who falls for a famous but mentally unbalanced British actress.
