Her family are refugees from Croatia. Plot summary[ edit ] Paul Rayment, a man of late middle-age, loses part of a leg after his bicycle is hit by a car driven by a reckless young man.

He becomes reclusive and retreats to his flat where he is cared for by a succession of nurses. None suit him until Marijana, with whom he shares a European childhood hers in Croatia, his in France , comes along. The book can be read as a metafictional discourse on the inter-relationship between the literary author and the characters, and with reality.
