Set in the wilds of Washington State, Greenloop was once a model eco-community-until nature's wrath made it a tragic object lesson in civilization's fragility.

A young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing; one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover—these are the two couples whose story is told in this masterful novel.

Hence, we feel "the unbearable lightness of being" not only as the consequence of our pristine actions but also in the public sphere, and the two inevitably intertwine.
