Catherine is a film star--an inconstant wanderer, she is compared to Hecate, the lunar goddess--in search of her destiny. Catherine Crachat and her lover, Pierre Indemini (mathematician, painter and poet), part ways in Paris, only to be drawn separately to Vienna and into the web of lust and intrigue cast by the "femme fatale" Baroness Fanny Felicitas Hohenstein. Desired both by Fanny and by Pierre, Catherine must choose between joining in the threesome that Fanny is cultivating, or losing both friend and former lover. The deaths of Pierre and of Fanny force Catherine to explore the intersection of love, hatred, and spiritual striving which threatens her very identity."@en ;
