In the first life, it is 1740 and she is servant and companion to the aristocratic Seigneur. In the second, it is 1945 and Virginie is the young sister of a Parisian taxi driver named Bocage. Her former master is a Pygmalion-styled creator of erotically receptive women, a teacher who raises women of lowly origins to accommodate the tastes of a decadent French nobility. In the latter life, Bocage brings a circle of prostitutes home for his evenings of entertainment. --------- John Hawkes, (1925 - 1998), was a postmodern American novelist, known for the intensity of his work, which suspended some traditional constraints of narrative fiction.
