The trouble is he is no less in thrall to her alluring mother Poppy. More like sisters than mother and daughter they come as a pair a blistering presence that destroys Guys peace of mind suggesting the wildest stories but making it impossible for him to concentrate long enough to write any of them. Not that anyone reads Guy anyway. Not that anyone is reading anything. Reading Guy fears is finished. His publisher fearing the same has committed suicide. His agent like all agents is in hiding. Vanessa in the meantime is writing a novel of her own. Guy doesnt expect her to finish it or even start it but he dreads the consequences if she does. In flight from personal disappointment and universal despair Guy wonders if its time to take his love for Poppy to another level. Fiction might be dead but desire isnt. And out of that desire he imagines squeezing one more great book. By turns angry elegiac and rudeZoo Time is a novel about love - love of women love of literature love of laughter. It shows our funniest writer at his brilliant best."
