Frog MusicThe story of Blanche, exotic dancer in 1876 San Fransisco, her lover Arthur and his companion Ernest, all three former colleagues from a famous Parisian circus.

Pretty good. Story jumps around in time over a two or three week period as Blanche's life is overtaken by events. Vivid pictures of life in post gold rush San Fransisco during an epidemic. Based on true events.
