When Naomi Price is handed a te at her Paris hotel one night, she is flattered but doesn't pay it much attention. She is far too caught up with her glamorous new friends and the world of images they work in. But when she returns to London, the strange tes keep coming. Soon she is questioning her dreams and desires in a way she can't quite put her finger on. And before long she takes a blind jump out of her conventional existence. Why would anyone want to be someone else's muse?
