A “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” where two superpower arms negotiators, a Russian and an American, meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. The Russian,a seasoned veteran ” is polished and humorous but, also profoundly cynical about what the current sessions can accomplish. His American counterpart is a newcomer to the arms-control talks, is a bit stuffy and formal, but also idealistic about what can—and must—be achieved through perseverance and honest bargaining. Their informal meetings continue as the talks drag on and the seasons change, and through their absorbing and revealing conversations we become aware both of the deepening understanding between these two wise and decent men and also of the profound frustration that they increasingly feel.
