Chapter 4

Thursday morning in the library

  • He hears a woman named Lucie in his apartment building gabbing with the landlady.
  • Lucie, it seems, has decided at age forty to start having an affair with a younger man. Her husband comes home to her drunk every night, and she's had enough of it.
  • She says everything would be better if he started seeing another woman, too.
  • Antoine, though, knows that Lucie is overwhelmed by guilt and will do almost anything to avoid thinking about what she's doing.
