And not someone out there banal, a young ephebe from the crowd, taken under the wing out of respect for the beautiful. And not a jacket from the locals, uncle, that it will be stuffy to patronize her, to allocate funds in the name of eccentrics, because of the existential emptiness. No, Renata has a new boyfriend from crème de la crème, from the privileged caste of French millionaires, the owner of castles and hotels and, probably, newspapers and steamships. Monsieur X, who opened the legendary Caviar restaurant at the Place de la Madeleine for her at the height of the pandemic.”
