English novelist Guy Boyd's publisher forces him, against his inclination, to write a biography of the late Gabriel Brown, an eminent dealer in Old Masters. From the start, the project rattles the young Englishman, who has little interest in the Canadian-born connoisseur. As he settles into living in the dead man's house, interviewing his friends and lovers, Guy becomes fascinated with the process of life writing.

A short novel investigating the nature of art and collecting. A little bit of pandering to Canadian tastes since the novel is set in London and Spain. Interesting and worth reading.
