KIRKUS REVIEW

An off color item-- even if true blue-- provides the sexual dossier on a middle-aged woman. The Madame, from the time when she picks up The Blond, a beautiful young boy, on a bench in the Tuileries. Actually The Blond, whose name is Mignon (quel fantaisie) has another protector, a Negro Yves, who procures for him, arranges the thefts they will pull off, and has a more personal influence over him. Madame takes Mignon home with her, locks him up for a week, buys him paints to keep him busy, and even, when she feels she in not sufficiently desirable, brings him a fille de joie for a night. She then kills the girl with her little revolver, seduces Mignon herself (Yves at this point is hiding under the boxspring) and so it goes, from bed to worse, in the most startling fashion.... A Place Figalle peepshow for tired glands.
