In the 1950's poet Christopher Chubb teaches Australia a lesson about pretension when he composes a body of sexually charged poems, then dupes a trendy literary magazine into believing the poems were written by the late Bob McCorkle, an undiscovered genius.

Decades later a literary editor named Sarah Wode-Douglass begins peeling back the layers of the Chubb mystery in of all places, Malaysia--where the reclusive poet remains in hiding.
