But there's more than just subtle humor for the writers among us. I was genuinely surprised by the protagonist's submission as it was a familiar story, something I read in another of Fry's books. In a somewhat meta, self-aware way, it retroactively added to that particular story as well. Highly recommended, even for those who aren't authors.
Sweet, hilarious and refreshingly frank in its unflinching evaluation of the "writing class", this story works on multiple levels. There is the easy humour, the deep satire and the creeps-up-on-you real lesson, or real story to be told.
When you've finished, you'll find yourself doing some soul searching about why you write. If you look deeper into Fry's text, you'll also find that he's already given you the answer.
