Welcome to the world of the glamour. The glamour is the unsuspected underworld to our normal lives, seductive and sinister, peopled by those who can never be seen. It exists on the edge of reality, full of doubt, behind a veil of invisibility. But is the invisibility real, or is it merely a state of not being noticed? This is the story of two young people who fall in love while trying to escape from the glamour. Richard Grey is a television news cameraman, his career shattered by a terrorist outrage, who has to piece his life together from old but unreliable memories. Susan Kewley, a graphic artist, is torn between Grey and another man, one deeply embedded in his introspective world of invisibility.
