Part 2, Chapter 13
- Einar visits Madame Jasmin-Carton's seedy joint.
- Inside is a peep show, though Einar visits not for sexual pleasure but to "examine women" (13.9) and learn how to better be one himself.
- He and Greta live in Paris now, and Greta still paints Lili every day.
- One day, Einar visits Madame Jasmin-Carton's for a special show where he watches a man and a woman have sex.
- Einar wants to find a man who will do that to Lili, and he is so aroused that he stains his pants.
- With his stained pants, he goes to sit in a park, where, nearby, children play with a kite.
- The children's governess thinks Einar, with his stained suit, is suspicious, so she pulls the children away from him.
- Einar decides to give himself one year: If he hasn't figured out his identity by then, he will kill himself.
- The children's kite crashes near Einar, and the young girl goes to retrieve it. She isn't afraid of Einar at all.
