This chapter discusses Nina's relationship with Edney, which had been, for all its intensity, a meeting of the heart and mind, stopping short of the physical intimacy she longed for. In the months after she left Tryon, Nina found little social life of any sort, although there was one brief episode with a young man from home that was, in a way, connected to Edney because they knew each other. The day Nina ran into him on a Harlem street she was particularly lonesome, and, as it happened, so was he. New York City was “too much to deal with,” she said. He reminded her of Edney and took his place that night. “It wasn't what I expected, not at all. It hurt like hell and put me off the whole idea of men for a good while.”.
