Summary A novelist, who writes sketches for the radio under a false name, lives in self imposed exile from his native France in an imaginary coastal town somewhere in the Mediterranean basin. One day in a local café he sees a young girl in her twenties who vaguely reminds him of someone he once knew. This encounter brings a repressed childhood memory to the surface and so begins the story: the narrator is filled with an emptiness as his former existence appears before him in a series of flashbacks. A mysterious aura hangs over the town with the sun's sweltering heat beating down on its streets and squares, the taste of salt hangs in the air and one can still feel the grains of sand in one's clothes left over from a visit to the beach.
