Her sense of reality severely warped by a childhood spent in feminist communes populated by lesbian university lecturers and PhD students, Clytemnestra finally visits the Spanish village where she had been conceived. The people there have never read a book, let alone heard of radical feminism; and a woman can be called Immaculate Conception, know both of her progenitors …and not find it in the least bit strange. Her budding excitement at this new world is tinged with the pathos of a lifelong search for her father, which becomes increasingly desperate as the novel unfolds. She has read her mother's manuscript, an unpublishable romantic novel, and knows who her imaginary father is. But who is her real father? And, come to that, who is she?
