About this product
- DescriptionBy Cecile depicts Post-WWII France as it reels from war and recovery. In Paris, an orphan girl finds refuge with an older man. He introduces her to nightclubs, intellectuals, artists (Jean Cocteau, Jean-Paul Sartre and Eartha Kitt) and n-mogamy. When she falls for his mistress, she begins to live a life she deems worthy of writing about, but only under the pseudonym of her husband. Her husband takes her vels and signs them as his own so she takes his mistress and becomes her lover.
