A successful sitcom
writer with plenty of money, a stable marriage, a platonic
mistress and a flash car, Laurence 'Tubby' Passmore has more
reason than most to be happy.
Yet neither money
nor the ministrations of his therapists can cure his puzzling knee
pain or his equally inexplicable mid-life angst.
As Tubby's life
fragments under the weight of his self-obsession, he embarks - via
Kierkegaard, strange beds from Rummidge to Beverly Hills, a fit of
literary integrity and memories of his 1950s boyhood - on a
picturesque quest for his lost contentment . . .
