The novel begins with the introduction of Phil, as he is in the midst of preparing for one of his off-the-wall schemes. His friends are both shocked, and not so surprised, to hear that Phil is selling off everything he owns and leaving on the first plane to anywhere, with the guise being research for a novel he’d like to write. In the end his novel is completed, but not in the manner you'd expect.
