Tanya Stephens is a 29-year-old graphic designer who works for Ill Will, a greeting-card company founded on the principle that the British love being atrociously rude to their nearest and dearest. After a series of boyfriends - too keen, too needy or just too mind-numbingly boring - she has decided that all she needs in life are her books and the occasional episode of FRASIER. But then Tanya finds a book ostensibly about her own life. Is her one true love now happily married and living in Swansea? Did her mum really sleep with her dad's best friend? On her quest to separate fact from fiction, Tanya is forced to question her place in the world, and whether love can ever be a part of it.
