The story is told through the experiences of Archie, a recent college graduate and aspiring writer who appears to be stuck in a cycle of addiction, amorality and alienation after losing his long time girlfriend Sadie. Sadie ends their relationship at the beginning of the winter season because, as she sees it, Archie has changed from the man she fell in love with to a creature of addiction and neglect, something he denies and won’t even admit to himself.

Archie tries moving on and does everything he can to forget about Sadie but this only sinks him further into a state of disaffection and addiction as he survives through the cold winter attempting to go about his life as normally as possible while slowly trying to conceal his continued emotional disintegration.Throughout the novel’s episodic structure, an ordinary young man is presented with a not so ordinary life as Archie deals with his inability to cope with losing Sadie (even discovering early on that she just might have already moved on with someone else) while going about his days with his closest friends in a whirlwind of parties, drugs, bar-hopping and sex.

As the story unfolds, a myriad assortment of interesting characters are introduced as they come in and out of Archie’s life- among them are Heather the model, Zeus the dealer, Hannah the sadomasochist, Chris the stoner, Ryan the hedonist, Marilyn the psychic, Fritz the sex addict and of course Sadie, the woman behind our protagonist’s feelings of loss and alienation.

Throughout the novel, Archie comes face to face with cocaine socials and sexual decadence while his enduring feelings for Sadie will incite him passionately into near self-immolation as the story begins to move faster and increase in tension while it penetrates deeper and deeper into the primal secrets of middle class life by showing how unnerving, yet so normal, it all really is. Altogether, this remarkable and endearing group of characters will create a mosaic whose stories are interwoven throughout the novel and in this bedlam of passion and obsession, there is still humor and suspense and by the sublime end, a possibility of salvation.
