"This is the story of Lolita Cassard, a 20-year-old girl who is angry at the whole world because she doesn't look like the girls in the magazines and who would love so much to be beautiful, at least in the eyes of her father. It's also the story of a man, Étienne Cassard, who doesn't look at other people very much because he spends so much time looking at himself. It's the story of a writer, Pierre Miller, who doesn't believe he'll ever become successful until the moment when he meets Étienne Cassard. It's the story of a singing teacher, Sylvia Miller, who believes in her husband and his talent, but who doubts her own and that of her pupil Lolita, until the moment when she realises she's the daughter of Étienne Cassard, that author she so admires. It's the story of human beings who know perfectly what they would do in someone else's place but don't do very well in their own"--Case-slip
