Set in Canada and post-war Yugoslavia, Bluebeard’s Seventh Door begins with the celebrity funeral of Marie, the “Femme Fatale” of Westmount. The funeral is attended by a sensation-hungry crowd because the cause of death is suicide. Among the crowd is the novel’s main character, a womanizing musicologist. Conspicuously absent is Marie’s maid, Karin, an illegal immigrant who, like Scheherazade, has entertained the musicologist with sex and horror stories of World War II retributions.
Firefighter Colin Callahan is having a brush with the supernatural. Not only is a tiny light leading him to female victims trapped in burning houses, he's having erotic dreams about an angel.Ella Lansing is lying in a coma. She wants to wake up but her spirit is busy acting as a guardian angel. Colin is the only person Ella can touch, her only…
The novel’s protagonist is a mass of contradictions: a philandering loner who can’t bear to be alone yet fears commitment; a social misanthrope entangled in other people’s lives; and a freelance intellectual who makes occasional forays into academia. Most of all and metaphorically, he is Bluebeard, opening “the seventh door of his castle” and facing the women from his past.
Bluebeard’s Seventh Door pokes fun at love, friendship and motherhood, at atrocities of history, success and failure. Author André Vecsei takes a probing look at our society and our souls, with a story that is rich in black humor and profoundly human.
