It is by no means clear just how much control Jeremy Davenant has over his own life. For he's convinced that the blueprint of his future already exists?on a page plucked from a random book. Romantic, fatalistic, quixotic, he blithely teaches with forged credentials at a Montreal university while waiting for his life to unfold. Yet one glance from a dark lady in the street below, and his life veers into chaotic mischance and obsession.

When Jeremy falls suddenly and inexplicably in love with the half-Indian Milena, he is convinced that their encounter has been foretold on the Page. But Milena's life (not to mention her sexual identity) requires as much decoding as the Page, and Jeremy stumbles after her into farce, terror, and, for a brief spell, bliss.
