Abstract:

London's House of Journalists exists as an officious sanctuary for writers who have fled despotic governments. Current inhabitants include Mr. Stan, whose tortured, twisted body is a warning of the dangers all outspoken journalists face; Mustapha, who left his family behind in the wake of a revolution; and Agnes, a photojournalist unable to take up her camera after recording atrocities. Into this group comes the standoffish journalist "AA." Julian thinks he's there to bring down the house, but AA's ultimate goal is more surprising than that.
