When a wannabe sci-fi author receives his 1000th rejection letter, how can he possibly recover? Easily, by getting drunk and writing a best-selling sex novel.
Middle-aged clerk, Reuben Rudge has been writing sci-fi novels for years and getting nowhere. His latest rejection letter is the last straw, so he gets drunk and watches a late night TV documentary about BDSM. The next morning he wakes up naked on the floor, with a manuscript to post.
He receives a letter for Ms Raspberry Caine inviting her to contract talks for the adult novel, 'Disciplinary Attraction'. After finding the MS on his laptop, Rudge is shocked to discover that he's the author. Fearing a lack of credibility, he hires young Becky, a complete stranger at his bus stop, to stand-in for him as Raspberry Caine.
The book is a bestseller, and Rudge lies to his wife about a new job in London. Becky becomes Raspberry Caine full-time, bluffing her way through the book launch and numerous functions attended by celebrities and the ‘arty-farty’ glitterati.
Rudge is under pressure to write the sequel, but has no ideas. Becky steps in to document the kinky exploits of her new celebrity friends, but forgets to change their real names. Will a scandal unfold ? Does Mrs Rudge discover her husband's secret life?
