Sasha Jensen has returned to Paris, the city of both her happiest moments and her most desperate.

When she is picked up by a young man, she begins to feel that she is still capable of desires and emotions. Few encounters in fiction have been so brilliantly conceived, and few have come to a more unforgettable end.
