The writer seems to be having an awful lot of fun here, but bearing in mind it is a short story, I loved it. there is a distinctively French feel to the story, some absurdist elements, and the whole thing is a hoot. Nothing and no one is who they seem to be. Lou's psychological observation is both precise and intense.
