9780060149819: Virginie : Her Two Lives

Virginie is an 11-year-old girl leading two lives. In the first life, it is 1740 and she is servant and companion to the aristocratic Seigneur. In the second, it is 1945 and Virginie is the young sister of a Parisian taxi driver named Bocage. Her former master is a Pygmalion-styled creator of erotically receptive women, a teacher who raises women of lowly origins to accommodate the tastes of a decadent French nobility. In the latter life, Bocage brings a circle of prostitutes home for his evenings of entertainment.
