Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Mistaken for a famous but reclusive author of the same name, lonely Shriver attends a writers' conference at a small Midwestern liberal arts college. Completely unfamiliar with the novel he supposedly wrote and utterly unprepared for the magnitude of the reputation that precedes him, Shriver is feted, fawned over, featured at stuffy literary panels, and barely manages to play it cool. Things quickly go awry when one of the other guest authors suddenly disappears and Shriver becomes a prime suspect in the investigation. Amidst eager fans, Shriver must contend with a persistent police detective, a pesky journalist determined to unearth his past, and a mysterious and possibly dangerous stalker who seems to know his secret. But most vexing of all, Shriver's gone and fallen in love with the conference organizer, who believes he's someone else. When the "real" Shriver (or is he?) appears to claim his place among the literati, the conference--and Shriver's world--threaten to unravel.
