The final volume of this six-book series finds our hero settled into his French domicile, still illustrating quirky sex fantasies and ranting against the human condition, but increasingly working from photos and historical themes. Scenes from My Secret Life cozy up to torture at Abu Ghraib prison, family portraits to Rough Women of the Dark Ages. Old age, predictably, has brought more castigation than contentment.
