How can we understand "a torn man"? I found it in Love Is a Fallacy.
I sat down in a chair and pretended to read a book, but out of the corner of my eye I kept watching Petey. He was a torn man. First he looked at the coat, with even more longing in his face. Then he turned away, but with not so much resolution this time. Back and forth his head swiveled, desire waxing,resolution waning. Finally he didn't turn away at all; he just stood and stared with mad lust at the coat.
Does it mean that the man is easy to change his mind?
