All you need is love, claimed the Beatles, and though that's a nice sentiment it's only half true. In order for that love to stick you'll need an equivalent measure of honesty and fair dealing, too. That's a fact of life Lyman Felt learns the hard way. Lyman likes his ladies to the degree that he can't confine himself to only one; he's so sexually rapacious he's a bigamist, and that arrangement works fine for him for a while. Then Lyman gets in a serious car accident and his wives meet for the first time, with disastrous results, while he's recuperating in the hospital. Arthur Miller's The Ride Down Mount Morgan
