Joan Castleman has been married to celebrated, egotistical writer Joe for years, subjugating her own talents. When he wins the Nobel Prize, they travel to Stockholm, where Joan keeps Joe in line while he and the other all-male winners prepare to receive their glory. Another writer—hoping to be Joe’s official biographer—waits in the wings, picking at family wounds and secrets.
