Description
"This delightfully unconventional novel, [Jacques] Roubard's third work featuring Hortense, takes up where Hortense is Abducted left off. The attractive young fiancée of Prince Gormanskoi of Poldavia, Hortense enjoys a sexy romp through myriad subplots among a cast of characters mirroring those in various Shakespearean plays, most notably Hamlet. Her trials and tribulations in this imaginary kingdom incorporate mathematical permutations and extrapolations that suggest the French author's mathematical background. As the plot lurches along, nothing is sacred; Roubard lambastes a wide range of earthly concerns, including the environment, libraries, sartorial convention, and male chauvinism."—Library Journal
