“[George is] my late husband, except I haven’t killed him yet. I made the mistake of telling [my mother] about my Stendhal dream…and she said if I’d had a better marriage, I wouldn’t be dreaming about dead Frenchmen.”

In the summer of 1992, public relations writer Alison Miller takes her savings and flies from Chicago to Europe in search of information about Stendhal, the nineteenth-century French author of The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma. Traveling to the same cities, walking the same streets, and taking in the same vistas, Alison hopes to discover fresh material and gain an intimate perspective to write a new biography of Stendhal with whom she feels a deep affinity.
