The hero of this unusually perceptive novel is a young film critic and the book traces his amorous adventures in various parts of the world, set against the background of the fashionable milieu of the jet set. On the surface he is a wealthy young man roaming the brittle world of society in search of an ever-changing collection of women, but beneath this facade M. Mauriac depicts a genuine search for love. The hero is obsessed with his memories of one girl and we gradually understand that all the others were mere substitutes, alluring doll-like products of their society, through whom he seeks to recapture the essence of a tender and lasting love. The resulting book is something of a tour de force, a genuine and sensitive statement about relationships and a valid comment on contemporary society. Claude Mauriac was the son of novelist Francois Mauriac and was one of France's leading film critics.
