High-flying literary agent Alexander Joyce (William Beck) is a hive of activity - from reading manuscripts to securing book deals, and entertaining celebrity clients by taking them out to lunch. However, first of all there is an author to deal with whose latest book Alexander thinks is, to be frank, not up to scratch. What he hadn't counted on thought is the author's resourcefulness...

This bitingly funny film takes you behind the scenes of the publishing world to witness the wheeling and dealing required to create the next bestseller.
