Synopsis: “This swift, elegant, disturbing novel…stands at the extreme of contemporary fiction” New York Times Book Review
He is a middle-aged American writer called Philip; she is an articulate, well-educated Englishwoman trapped in a loveless and humiliating marriage. In Philip’s London studio, this play of voices – sharp, tender and inquiring – reveals both their past lives with startling clarity. Deception is fiendishly clever, as it dances with the conventions of the novel, and redefines the boundaries between fiction and reality.
