Overview

A motley crew of characters deftly woven into a brilliant mashup of the spy novel and the art-world parody. We know how Simone met the man who will become, for a time, her fourth husband. We know what she does (artist), her friends (a veritable menagerie), her habits (frustrated homebody). What remains to learn are the things she still doesn't fully understand herself, like her role in the affair of the Port Merveille diamond. The Supreme Orchestra ismany things at once: a geopolitical thriller, an art-world exposé, a digressive social study, a mischievous parody.
