In 1979, Canadian actor Beth Kaplan surprised herself by agreeing to live and work for four months in a community of intellectually disabled men in Provence. Her memoir Loose Woman, an intimate, sometimes hilarious tale with an unforgettable cast of characters, tells of her astonishing transformation from sexually adventurous, quasi-alcoholic actor into a resolute young woman embarking on a brand-new life.
