Envy free pdf As the result of a series of fortuitous encounters and circumstances, a writer falls victim to an obsessive curiosity about the famous artist Julian Sax.

The writer's wife, the charming and sensuous Rossa, eventually takes him to a tea room in London, where Sax spends a few hours of each day accompanied by his children, models and friends.
