Adèle appears to have the perfect life: She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a beautiful apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But underneath the surface, she is bored–and consumed by an insatiable need for sex.

“Fascinating . . . Adèle has glanced at the covenant of modern womanhood–the idea that you can have it all or should at least die trying–and detonated it.” —The New York Times Book Review
