A struggling author adopts a female persona to improve his chances of getting published. His ruse works too well, and he is forced into ever more outlandish stratagems to maintain the deception.
Love Is All Round is a feminist publishing house where Harriet Copeland is running a competition to find new romantic fiction; their motto is ‘For Women, By Women’. So Leonard Loftus submits his novel under a female pseudonym. When ‘Lulabelle Latiffa’ wins first prize, Leonard has a major problem: he is a bashful statistician lumbered with a spectacular alter ago.
