As the tale unravels we meet Plato's London friend Alice Stepford, now a leading music critic in New York- Mrs. NaughtyA" Latif, the Islamabad housewife whose fondness for generals forces her to flee to the salons of intellectually fashionable Paris- and there's Jindie, the Golden Butterfly of the title, the narrator's first love.
