Bookseller Ray says "Juxtaposing the story of a young woman's love affair with an ageing, writer and An Iraqi Kurdish immigrant this is a supremely intelligent, labyrinthine novel of literary ambition. For a debut it is an astonishing achievement. Clever , skilful , crafty, and very funny. On one level a romantic comedy, on the other a serious look at art and artifice. The end section of the book is a truly rib tickling surprise."

In New York, Alice, a young editor, begins an affair with Ezra Blazer, a world-famous, much older writer. At Heathrow airport, Amar, an Iraqi-American economist en route to Kurdistan, finds himself detained for the weekend. What draws these characters together, and how do their lives connect, if at all?
