The book features the primary characters in the roles of Tanya Stephens, Carl, Richard, etc. Initially, Tanya Stephens is introduced as a twenty-nine years old woman, who works as a graphic designer. She is employed in a greeting card company called Ill Will. This company was started with the belief that the English people are atrociously rude to the people close to them and their friends and they easily find ways to achieve exemption from punishment. Even Tanya Stephens is brainwashed to believe that there is no point in having boyfriends or friends. In her youth, she had only one true lover and numerous boyfriends. Most of her boyfriends seemed too keen, mind-numbingly boring, or too needy to her.

Tanya Stephens is currently dating a boyfriend named Richard. He is a carpet-fitter by profession. Tanya has kept a relationship with him only for the sex part. Other than him, she is also seeing Carl, who works as a road sweeper. Tanya is attracted towards Carl because he also loves books like her. She finds happiness in reading books. Occasionally, Tanya Stephens reads a few chapters of her favorite books or keeps herself immersed in the dark imaginations of her own. Sometime later, she comes across a book in a second-hand bookstore that ostensibly describes her own life. Tanya becomes so much mesmerized by that book that the line between reality and truth begins to become blurred for her. She begins to question her own existence and wonders if her true love is happy with his marriage to another woman and working for a good company in Swansea. Tanya also doubts if her father’s best friend had slept with her mother. As Tanya tries to separate fiction from fact, she is forced to question being a part of this world.
