Présentation de l'éditeur
But by the day's end, events have taken a dramatic turn and Miss Hawkins is sentenced to live. Forcibly retired, she is presented by her colleagues with a five-year diary.
Programmed since childhood to total obedience, Miss Hawkins slavishly follows her dairy's commands until the impossible happens ? she meets a man. As a last reprieve from the horrors of loneliness she embarks on a determined full-scale mission to taste life's secret pleasures ? and pains? until the cup runs dry?
