Summary In this novel two characters are roommates in a luxury Parisian flat. In her interview the writer explains that she did not agree with 2 aspects of the original story, and the most important, of the moral of the story: above all, Nothomb will fight for the right of everybody to have a secret. Second point is that the wives in the tale were all stupid women. In her novel, Barbe Bleue is treated with more humanism. The heroines are characterized by more pragmatism.
