With Berthe, his neighbor's wife, Ocatve rises to the heights of passion- until the shattering of their midnight tryst rocks the house like an earthquake. With Madame Hedouin, he tries to mix business with pleasure and lands on the red side of Cupid's ledger. With the mysterious Madame Juzeur, he learns of the secret ways of love and the keys to ladies' hearts. With the men of the house, Octave learns all there is to know of the night life of Paris, of the Paris of kept women, amorous rendezvous, and back door intrigues. ; 4.25" x 6.25"
