Summary
"The Woman and The Puppet - which drew some of its inspiration from Bizet's Carmen, as well as a particular episode in Casanova's Memoirs - is a precise account of obsessive love, a distillation of decadent themes that holds good from one fin-de-siecle to another, a cautionary tale whose title acknowledges that for a woman to be fatale requires the complicity of a male puppet." "The novel opens during the boisterous Seville Carnival of 1896 during which Andre Stevenol, an amorously-inclined young Frenchman, succeeds in attracting the attention of the alluring Concha Perez. A rendezvous is arranged, but before it can take place Andre meets Don Mateo, who, in a long monologue recounts his affair with Concha and seeks to dissuade the younger man from becoming embroiled with the 'worst of women', who has teased, ridiculed and humiliated him. The warning like most warnings had little effect."--BOOK JACKET
