Huguette came to international attention with a well-received exhibition in New York City followed by an inspiring week at Art Miami where she lived her dream of experienceing the dazzling array of international artists, collectors, celebrities and hustlers. During this time, she cemented her vision of Minnie, a woman of years seeking adventure and love. Minnie found it in what some would consider “all the wrong places” but in following her heart came upon what she was looking for.When I first heard snippets of this tale, I promptly urged Huguette to complete her novel and 55,000 words later, the tale is told. My initial impression was that Jane Fonda, yes Barbarella herself, would be perfect for the role. During Minnie’s incubation period, Ms. Fonda found herself starring in a related story, turning heads in Hollywood thanks to a gigantic billboard and TV series trailer where she’s holding on tight to vibrator with “Grace and Frankie” co-star Lily Tomlin. Huguette’s story is far more interesting and real, an artist’s quest for fulfilling love in an adventure usually restricted to punk-rockers.
