An award-winning French author offers a classic tale of adultery with a new twist. A woman begins a clandestine affair with a married man, but soon becomes obsessed--pathologically--with his unknown wife ("sa femme"). Bernheim writes a powerfully insightful tale of the relationships between men and women and the nature of obsession.
