Nights in a Foreign Country

Brazil at night

‘It was David who found the apartment for us. I love the name of our street, rue du Dragon, even if the only dragons are the women who shop at the Maud Frizon store a few doors down.’

Wolves stalk the streets of Paris, and concert pianists stalk women who love women in these sensual stories by Jean McNeil. In London, a young woman constructs an imaginary romance in the Once Seen columns; in Brazil, a fading writer tries to revitalise his career by tracking the journey of his more successful rival; beneath the shadow of a volcano a young woman writes of love. Set in Britain, Canada, France and Latin America, each one of these zestful, exhilarating stories is a whole world in itself.
