In a world obsessed with watching itself, reality is the new rock ‘n’ roll, and Tobe Darling – showbusiness guru and reality alchemist – has the would-be stars of tomorrow beating a path to his door.

After a disastrous appearance on a television show, things come to a head: Tobe dissolves his business partnership and goes out on his own with just one client to his name. But this new client is different from the rest. He is the ultimate show business personality.
