Could anybody be more prosaic, less romantic, less gallant and more constant than a solid Welsh socialist husband of ten years' standing? Why, only a forty-year-old Latin lover, of course.

As we follow this strangely incongruous pair, quarrelling, coming together, travelling uneasily along electrically charged parallel lines, a wonderful real and delightfully comic picture emerges.
