Veral saam met een vrou, ver weg in Positano, ’n dorpie in ItaliŽ, kon hy hom loswikkel van die beklemming van sy konserwatiewe ma wat hom nŠ sy pa se selfmoord alleen grootmaak.
Maar dit was ook nie die laaste beklemming nie. Op die vooraand van Tristan se 27ste verjaardag vind ons hom in sy luukse dakwoonstel in Maboneng, onrustig nŠ ’n vreemde foonoproep vol dreigende stilte. Terwyl hy kan voel hoe hy deur ’n verkyker dopgehou word en dat die afloerder met iets anders as begeerte na hom kyk, reik sy herinneringe terug na gelukkiger dae in Positano, en na sy opleiding in die kuns van liefdemaak.
