Eva, a French singer living in Manhattan, becomes worried when Frank Jackson, the father of Eva's daughter, Mimi, returns demanding a chance to get to know the girl
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
An abundance of sleaze, sex, and sordid slang mar this tale of a woman living in New York City. To make ends meet Eva sings in a nightclub and from her home runs a sex hotline (verbal sex in excruciating detail over the telephone lines). In her spare time she engages in torrid sexual encounters with her lover, farms out her daughter to another woman for daily care, and resents the arrival of the child's biological father, who is looking for a relationship with the daughter he has refused to acknowledge previously. There is a story to be told here, but Texier hides it behind the nasties of Eva's existence as well as the device of alternating narrators. This is only for the ultrasophisticated reader.

French immigrant Eva Marquand, who lives in seedy Times Square, works as a cabaret singer and pursues a phone-sex sideline to support her young daughter. According to PW , this "buoyant, erotically energized novel" was inspired by Celine's sordid vision of urban life, but is, however, "more upbeat."
