Happily loitering about London, c. 1949, with the intent of gathering material for her writing, Fleur Talbot finds a job on the grubby edge of the literary world at the very peculiar Autobiographical Association. Mad egomaniacs writing their memoirs in advance or poor fools ensnared by a blackmailer? When the association s pompous director steals Fleur s manuscript, fiction begins to appropriate life."
