Mamoon is an eminent Indian-born writer who has made a career in England — but now, in his early seventies, his reputation is fading, his book sales have dried up and his new wife has expensive tastes. Harry, a young writer, is commissioned to write a biography to revitalise Mamoon’s career. He greatly admires Mamoon’s work and wants to uncover the truth of the artist’s life, but Harry’s publisher seeks a more salacious tale of sex and scandal to generate headlines. Meanwhile, Mamoon himself is mining a different truth altogether — but which one of them will have the last word?
