Summer 1987. Stephen Wallingford, once the epitaph of all things  fabulous and now a recluse of the modern era, receives a letter from an  up and coming author wishing to talk about his life. Although reluctant  to meet, Stephen decides to re-emerge from the shadows, and reflect on  the past, of childhood ambitions and dreams, forgotten lovers and the  scandalous demise of the bright young things. And with tears, laughter  and broken hearts rediscovered, Stephen is transported back in time to a  life of parties, pink gin and illicit love.


Born in the early part of the twentieth century and the social upheaval  that followed the end of the first world war, Agatha kept the press  entranced at the time and has fascinated readers and writers ever since.  There was a period where Agatha Dewsbury could do no wrong; she was a  moderately successful novelist, she had friends in high places and  finished her education at a finishing school. But she was also what  fellow writer Gertrude Primrose called "lost". There was another side to  Agatha. Born a daughter to a vicar and suffragette, she was always  being labeled as beautiful, fragile, someone who loved a party. She  travelled, became a writer and became a drunk. There were suspicions  though never proven she was a drug taker and had sexual liaisons with  other women. She was a lover, a mistress and, maybe a witness to murder. 


But there is one small problem. 

Stephen and Agatha did not exist, nor did any of her contemporaries  featured in these books, for the brutal reason they were never born.  The stories are fake and the news never happened. This is something new  and strange – fictionalized memoirs about unreal people set in a real  world
