"Since she’d arrived in America and gotten divorced, Ilona Siegel had been set up three times. The first man was not an ordinary man but a Ph.d from Moscow, the friend who’d arranged the date said.

He was thin in the famished way of grazing animals and endurance athletes, with folds of skin around his kneecaps and wiry rabbit muscles braided into his inner thighs."
