Summary:
This is the story of Lolita Cassard, a 20-year-old girl who is angry at the whole world because she doesn't look like the girls in the magazines, nor like her step-mother, and who would so love to be beautiful, at least in the eyes of her father or even have him look at her at all. But it's also the story of a man, Etienne Cassard, who doesn't look at other people very much because he spends so much time looking at himself, he can feel himself getting older, he too knows what it's like to be unloved, because he's had to fight to get where he is. It's the story of a writer, Pierre Miller, who doesn't believe in it anymore, and who doesn't believe he'll ever become successful until the moment when he does and he meets Etienne Cassard. It's the story of a singing teacher, Sylvia Miller, who believes in her husband and his talent, but doubts her own and that of her pupil Lolita, until the moment when she realizes she's the daughter of Etienne Cassard, that author she so admires. It's the story of human beings who know perfectly what they'd do in someone else's place but don't do very well in their own.
