An e-writer called Ali or Alix will write to order anything you like, provided you are prepared to enter the story yourself and take the risk of leaving it as someone else. You can be the hero of your own life. You can have freedom just for one night. But there is a price. Ali discovers that she too will have to pay it.

Set in London, Paris, Capri and Cyberspace, this is a book that reinvents itself as it travels. Using cover-versions, fairy tales, contemporary myths, and popular culture, The PowerBook works at the intersection between the real and the imagined. It’s territory is you.

‘Mischievous and intelligent, determined to provoke thoughts about love’s reason, and its risk.’- The Times
