Overview

From the lesbian bars of New York City to the back streets of Fez, from the S&M scene in Los Angeles to the calm ocean depths off a Caribbean island, the heroine of Don Juan in the Village is ever on the prowl. In search of the longed-for, idealized lover, she finds instead a series of wrenching, sometimes hilarious encounters with an array of women, among them a movie star, a moroccan prostitute, and a high school dropout who works as a grocery store clerk. Hip, sardonic, yet painfully self-conscious and often deluded, she is convinced that no matter where she goes or whom she is with, she is doomed to perpetual solitude and estrangement.
