Struggling novelist Guy Ableman is in thrall to his vivacious wife Vanessa. The trouble is, he is no less in thrall to her alluring mother, Poppy. In flight from personal disappointment and universal despair, Guy wonders if it's time to take his love for Poppy to another level. Fiction might be dead, but desire isn't. And out of that desire he imagines squeezing one more great book.
"How is it possible to read Howard Jacobson and not lose oneself in admiration for the music of his language…?" (The Times)
"On this form, Jacobson has better claims than anyone to be called the greatest novelist working in Britain today." (The Mail on Sunday)
