SUMMARY

The Lover (1962) humorously contrasts the bland domesticity of a suburban marriage with the eroticism of an illicit sexual encounter and explores the limits of a relationship built on fantasy and make-believe. While Richard initially accepts his wife’s infidelity, his attempt to put an end to her affair forces the couple to confront the significance of the eponymous lover’s position within their marriage.

In Ashes to Ashes (1996), Devlin forces Rebecca to reveal uncomfortable details about her past, only to discover that the boundaries between personal memory and public grief aren’t as stable as he thought.
