Summary (From the publisher):

Philippe Cabassac has fly-truffled every winter since childhood on his family estate in Provence. Stalking the flies that lay their eggs over the odoriferous truffles, he has become a master in this subtle art. With the death of his young wife, Julieta, however, his hunt takes on a new urgency: he discovers that the pungent tubers bring him a series of dreams where his lost wife is restored to him in intimate, prolonged union. Memory and dream braid together into a magical narrative, and Cabassac's seductive epiphanies overwhelm his waking life as he desperately pursues their promise of redemption and revelation.
