Vain about their young love, Louise and her husband Adrien used to laugh about the way he couldn't pass a mirror without looking. But when he deserts Louise for a famous model, she's devastated and forced to confront those vanities - his and her own. Meanwhile, life goes on regardless, making Louise feel all the more guilty about the melodrama her life has become." "With her privileged circumstances as the daughter of one of Europe's most famous writers only complicating things further, she gathers her painkillers around her, unleashes her ruthless sense of honesty, and - with lacerating relish - tries to unravel why her marriage failed...and whether a sane person should try such a thing again.
