Edward Driffield is a writer idolized by London's literati. His second wife commissions a second-rate popular novelist named Roy Kear to write Driffield's biography. When Kear explores Driffield's past, however, he finds out about Rosie, Driffield's first wife--who is not nearly so respectable as the woman who commissioned the biography, but who despite her commonness is clearly the muse of Driffield's greatest work.
