The elderly half-forgotten author Maurice Kingsley uses his beautiful fashion model niece Jessica's life as a model for a book, embroidering it with his own quirky insights into a surprise best-seller, a modern parable for a wasted life that becomes a candidate for the Booker Prize. Dennis Potter is author of "The Singing Detective" written for television. He has also written a previous novel, "Ticket to Ride".
