Sidley says that the book idea came to him two years ago.
The story centres around the main character, Max Lurie, a 30-something year-old who has failed both as a novelist and psychologist.
Lurie then tries his hand at a podcast series, which becomes a success after he begins to tell lies about his life.

It becomes about the tortured relationship with his podcast and his tortured relationship with his life.— Steven Boykey Sidley, author
