One gloomy Sunday afternoon, Gregoire Bouillier answers a call from a woman who left him five years before. She’s not calling to apologize but to invite him to be the “mystery guest” at a birthday party of a woman he’s never met.

Translated from French, this story is a true story of how a bottle of Bordeaux, a nonconsensual work of conceptual art, and a seemingly innocuous comment at a dinner party enabled one man to unravel the mystery of his being dumped, to explore how literature shapes and gives meaning to our lives, to let go of his heartbreak and dependence on turtlenecks, and to – in the most unexpected ways – fall in love again.
