Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In France, Alain Robbe-Grillet's final novel was sold in shrink-wrap, labeled with a sticker warning readers that this perverse fairy tale might offend certain sensibilities. It tells the story of Gigi, also known as Djinn, who is being schooled by her father to be a perfect slave and mistress.

It is titillating and disgusting, the work of a dirty old man or brilliant agent provocateur — or both.
