Ted Wallace - ein alternder Säufer, geschiedener Lüstling, intellektuelles Lästermaul - ist als Rezensent einer Tageszeitung gefeuert worden. Als ihn eine vormals unheilbar kranke Cousine bittet, die mysteriösen Umstände ihrer Genesung zu ergründen, zögert er nicht lange. Unter dem Vorwand, ein paar Wochen mit seinem Patenkind David zu verbringen, macht er sich auf den Weg nach Swafford Hall - dem Ort der unerklärlichen Heilung. David ist mittlerweile fünfzehn Jahre alt und so schön wie der Morgen; er ist ein feinfühliger, zurückgezogener, naturverbundener und heftig pubertierender Jüngling, der die Gäste und Familienmitglieder in seinen Bann zieht. Es umgibt ihn ein Geheimnis, das alle - bis auf Ted - zu kennen scheinen. Je schillernder die Besucher auf Swafford Hall, desto seltsamer die Ereignisse. Ted sieht sich Wundern, Geisterheilungen und anderen Phänomenen gegenüber, und er muß all seinen Grips zusammennehmen, um diesem Irrgarten aus Perversionen und Spleens zu entkommen. "Stephen Fry gehört zu jener spezifischen Schar englischer Allroundtalente, die schreiben und auftreten können, denen Musical, Fernsehserien, Soloentertainment genauso selbstverständlich sind wie das Vorhaben, einen Roman zu schaffen." Süddeutsche Zeitung "Fry ist ein Unterhalter im besten Sinn, ausgestattet mit einem feinen, niemals bösartigen Sinn für Humor, der die Quintessenz des Englischen augenzwinkernd zum Ausdruck bringt."

I wake up with the sun peeking in my eye. Thinking of my day and I guess I'll try. Walk over to the sink to wash my face. Going over my schedule, yelling out, "Fuck this place!" Brushing my teeth, I had to do that. What I want for breakfast? Cereal or oatmeal? Oatmeal yea that. Burnt my hand on the stove damn the pain! Go to rinse with water. It's off, damn again. I look at the clock and see eight one three. Damn that was quick hit them with the New York, damn B. I walked out the door depression hit me. Realized I was on a flat, pain is in me. Changing my tire busting my knuckles. All I can do is chuckle. Riding off going to work. Listening to radio, laughing like a crazy jerk. Pulling up to the plant the smell is real. Look in the phone at my kids I got to deal. Get in my jump suit clocking in. On the line they talking about the clubs the girls they went all in. I hit my lunch break. No money oh shit faked a stomach ache. Finishing up work feel my pain. Feet ache, headache no call from my main. Driving home slow even more depressed. My mind is locking on things that stress. Walking in the door remembering no water. My life in pain no real order. I go to bed too many hunger pains. Who gives a shit waking up to another day of pain?
