Synopses & Reviews
To all appearances, Laurence Passmore is sitting pretty. True, he's almost bald and his nickname is "Tubby", but the TV sit-com he writes is tipping the money in, he has beautiful house, a state-of-the-art automobile, a vigorous sex life with his wife of thirty years, a flat in London, and a platonic mistress to talk shop with on his regular business trips. He can well afford the ministrations of his therapists, and he can afford the charity account he runs to counterbalance these indulgences. What his money can't buy, and his therapists can't deliver, is contentment. He has a deep, nameless unease-free-floating angst-and he is addicted to therapy.
