Martin is a demagogue on the rise, a man whose dangerous fascination is matched by an underlying lack of definition. Louise and Lissa, childhood friends, are both in love with him, or in love with the idea of him, or in love with the idea of being in love with him. And then there's Fergus... When is sex politics and when is politics sex? When is fighting for the common good just looking out for yourself? Where does friendship begin and end? Web makes some powerful, thought-provoking observations on how the love/sex/politics dynamic operates, not just in politics, but in all our relationships.
