L'Auteur

Each weekday, after her husband has left for his office, Claudia retires to her rooftop studio, where for three hours she covers canvas with solid colour. Mid-morning, she walks twice around the tree lined square, with a small dog.

On Monday she meets a friend for lunch. Other days, weather permitting, she eats and smokes at a pavement cafe. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons she sees a lover. Afterwards they lie back on tangled sheets and bicker about politics and philosophy.

But today is Wednesday. Each Wednesday Claudia visits the cinema. She favours French black and white films with subtitles.
