On the face of it, Ben Bradford is a standard Wall Street hotshot - six-figure income, wife and two young kids straight out of a Gap catalogue. But with the WASP lifestyle comes the sting: Ben hates it. When he realises that the state of his marriage has less to do with baby-induced sleeplessness and more to do with a wife who's playing outside the ground, a moment of madness provides Ben with the opportunity to redesign his life. But as the roller-coaster trajectory of his new existence takes hold, he begins to question the price of fulfilment. Because finding yourself means nothing when you're pretending to be someone else.
