At 23, ambitious Nathan Zukerman has had four stories published, received a complimentary profile in Saturday Review, and has alienated his family with his unflattering biographical bent. When well-known author E.I. Lonoff invites Nathan to his secluded New England home, the budding young writer hopes to learn from a master. Instead of inspiration, however, Nathan encounters a man whose self-absorption borders on egomania and a hauntingly mysterious woman with her own destructive agenda.
