Alice is about to marry Mad. Alice is white. Mad is black. Alice is French; Mad, though he has studied and lived in France for years, is not.

But now Mad is being threatened with deportation and marrying Alice strikes both friends as the best solution to their problems. On the eve of her wedding, Alice reflects on their years of friendship together. Recounting stories of rebellion and friendship, Take This Man charters the passage from indignant adolescent to consciously engaged adult.
