This is a book about a French inventor, Claude Page, who spends his youth with a former priest, a bookseller who sells pornography, engages in an affair with a married woman of Parisian society and is befriended by a carriage driver.
While Page has an unusual and somewhat interesting life, there was nothing that really made me enjoy this book. I just couldn’t figure out where it was going.
