Summary (From the publisher):

Set in Switzerland during the first decades of this century, The Desert World focuses upon the troubled relationships uniting three remarkable characters: Jacques de Todi, the homosexual son of a pastor; Luc Pascal, a French poet; and Baladine Nikolaievna, a mysterious and fascinating Russian woman involved with them both. This novel is a potent exploration of the destructive power of sexuality and the interrelationships between love and death.
