What brings a respected 65-year-old Professor of musicology to look for a partner on the internet site? What awakens love between her, a woman whose family came to the country from Romania, and a younger-than-her Kurdish television technician? What constructs this love and what destroys it? Not what you would expect. The first story, an internet site prize winner, tells about it.

And how does a Jewish religious Professor of Slavic Studies get involved in a mad love affair with an English Brigadier of aristocratic family, a race driver, who comes to a conference of Slavic Studies in Bath as a spy? How much she is ready to sacrifice for this love, and why does it melt away? This is the contents of the second story.
