DescriptionLucinda Hoekke works at The Complaint Line, listening to anonymous callers air their random grievances. She becomes captivated by the ruminations of one particular caller, and they fall desperately in love.

What results is a comedy of plagiarism, usurpation, and sex, with delightful echoes of Jane Austen's Emma
