Agnes Day – sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire – has discovered disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world. Terminally middle-class and incurably romantic, Agnes finds herself chronically confused by the most basic interactions. Life and love go on without her, but with a little facade she can pass herself off as a success.

Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.
