Fine portrait of the characters and understanding of a courtesan and the men who keep her and the man who loves her. The view of Paris reminds me of the best of Honore de Balzac in "Pere Goriot." Clever plot, in the tradition of his father, but more judgmental about society's moral codes.

The book is compulsively readable, perhaps because the story???a young courtesan, redeemed by love, dying of consumption???is so familiar. I was really impressed with the narrator, Charlton Griffin. In fact, I almost cannot believe that he spoke the women's parts he was so convincing. I listen to a lot of audio books, and he is one of the best narrators I have ever heard.
