The title, when the children had first heard it and begun to understand it, was so incontestably mortifying that it threatened to stunt them forever, leaving them clocked in time and steadfast refusal to enter the adult world.' This is more or less what happens to Holly and Michael, Dashiell and Claudia, after they read the seminal book which their liberal parents Paul and Roz Mellow have written, a book that features tasteful pastel illustrations of their parents' lovemaking - and which has become a runaway bestseller.
