'This swift, elegant, disturbing novel...stands at the extreme of contemporary fiction' New York Times Book ReviewHe 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.
