Originaire d'un will pay de l'Est, Olga rencontre à Paris l'écrivain Hervé Sinteuil, directeur de los angeles revue Maintenant, puis sa famille: Mathilde et Jean de Montlaur. Une histoire d'amour " pas comme les autres ", les surprises d'une île secrète, les ravissements d'une naissance.

Martin, lui, anthropologue et homme de plaisir, découvre dans les terres australes que l'Etat est un mal, et son anarchisme le conduit de l. a. technological know-how à los angeles peinture, mais, surtout, après Mai sixty eight, à une révolte définitive. Carole l'accompagne, fidèle et blessée, que n'épargneront pas le reflux des idées et l. a. dépression.

Pendant que ces hommes et ces femmes, dans lesquels se reconnaître une génération, aiment et souffrent, partent en Chine, travaillent à ny, s'installent en Israël ou en Californie, leur destin croise celui de penseurs et d'écrivains illustres de ce temps: Maurice Lauzun, Armand Bréhal, Sherner, Wurst, Edelman, Benserade, Strich-Meyer...

L'érotisme, les femmes, le langage, les prisons, los angeles folie: débats, conflits, ruptures. Ces " thèmes " deviennent ici des caractères vivants.

Face à eux, Joëlle Cabarus, une psychanalyste, détachée et ironique, tient son magazine. Elle become aware of les autres avec une sympathie désabusée.

Les Samouraïs excellaient dans l'art de l. a. guerre comme dans los angeles poésie, los angeles calligraphie ou le rituel du thé. Olga, Hervé, Martin, Carole, Joëlle et les autres poursuivent une expérience qui les conduit parfois à l'erreur, à l. a. violence, à los angeles mort. Ces méditatifs sont les Samouraïs modestes, comiques ou intenses d'une société sans sacré, mais qui leur permet d'aller jusqu'au bout du sens de l. a. vie, jusqu'au bout d'eux-mêmes.
