AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Zac, a translator of Flaubert, can't believe his luck. He ends up sleeping with Odette, a beautiful but carpicious ceramic artist, and her best friend, Cicely, a talented knitter and author of an erotic novel. As well as an interest in Madam Bovary the three share a brief menage a trois. That is, until things unravel in unexpected ways, Cicely adopts the logical detection methods of a Miss Marple, and we come to know the delightful Miss Ball and her haberdashery.' (Publisher's blurb)
