I finally read this classic novel that tells a story of a young woman who travels to Vienna to attend a conference with her psychologist husband. While there she has a torrid affair with a free spirited psychologist who is the polar opposite of her husband.

Read as a preadolescent - where did I get my hands on it? A garage sale? My mom's bookshelf? - and would like to re-read as an adult. I was confused by 99% of the book as a kid. But I remember the "zipless fuck" and the dancing penis.
