In it reality and imagination, past and present, truth and lie are so inextricably interwoven that they eventually, and inevitably, become one.Against the background of Hong Kong, Robbe-Grillet creates a world of crime, intrigue, and passion, a world filled with pleas-ure, death, and corruption, and dominated by the Blue Villa, the maison de rendez-vous, run by Lady Ava. Robbe-Grillet has given us the story of one night at the Blue Villa- or perhaps of every night. Or perhaps a night inside the mind of one man dedicated to the pleasures of womens flesh. It is the readers pleasure to create his own version of the evening.La Maison de Rendez-vous, the master of the new novel creates a world of crime, intrigue, and passion dominated by Lady Avas mysterious Blue Villa. Set in Hong Kong, the novella unfolds over the course of one evening, but the events of that night recur repeatedly, from the perspectives of different characters. Robbe-Grillet creates an unsettling work that challenges ideas about subjectivity and objectivity, fiction and fact, and the entire process of storytelling.
