From his experiences as a naval officer in Japan during World War II, Philip Bowman returns to America and becomes a book editor. He soon inhabits a world where affairs ignite, alcohol reigns, writers struggle, and publishers hustle. As one marriage goes bad and another fails to happen; he meets a woman who enthralls, then betrays him, setting him on a course he could never have imagined for himself.
