A Love Story with Interruptions
Trapped behind the switchboard of a sleepy academic institution, a nameless receptionist attempts to write a novel about her romance with the mysterious Man Who Mustn't Be Mentioned while impeded by the unwelcome distractions of paid employment.
Soon a love story which was meant to start at the beginning and finish at the end gets out of hand, as narrator and reader are forced to grapple with such vital topics as Lunch, Master/Slave Dialectics, Evil, the intention of the telephone, the personal safety of the Queen's husband and, above all, the confusing and comical relationship between fiction and real life.
