    Iris Vegan, a graduate student living alone and impoverished in New York, encounters four strong characters who fascinate and in different ways subordinate her: an inscrutable urban recluse who employs her to record the possessions of a murdered woman; a photographer whose eerie portrait of Iris takes on a life of its own; an old woman in hospital who tries to claim a remnant of the ailing Iris; and a professor she has an affair with.

    Harriet Burden ist die Frau eines einflussreichen New Yorker Galeristen. Nach dessen vorzeitigem Tod beginnt sie ein heimliches Experiment: eine Karriere als Installationskünstlerin, die sich hinter dem angeblichen Werk dreier männlicher "Masken" verbirgt, das in Wahrheit sie selbst erschaffen hat. Doch der Faustische Handel schlägt fehl - einer dieser Maskenmänner, selbst ein bekannter Künstler, durchkreuzt ihr Rollenspiel und setzt sein eigenes dagegen. Es kommt zum Kampf zweier widerstreitender großer Geister - einem Kampf auf Leben und Tod.

    Die junge S. H. bezieht 1979 ein heruntergekommenes Zimmer in New York. Sie kommt direkt aus der Provinz, und als angehende Schriftstellerin genießt sie den Schmutz wie den Glanz der neuen Stadt. Alles saugt sie begierig auf. So auch, durch die papierdünnen Wände, die klagenden Monologe ihrer Nachbarin Lucy Brite. Von Misshandlung ist die Rede, von Kindstod, ja von Mord. Lucy wird für S. H. zur Obsession. Bis eines Nachts ein dramatisches Ereignis in S. H.s Wohnung dazu führt, dass sich die beiden Frauen zum ersten Mal gegenüberstehen.
