Pub. Date:
A president is overthrown by a military coup in a nameless country, and in the midst of mass arrests, three members of the presidential household - his barber, chef, and portraitist - are taken hostage in a remote mountain palace. Before the coup, these men worked with unquestioning loyalty, serving the President in the seemingly benign tasks of grooming him, nourishing him, and rendering his image. But as the old order falls, the truth about these men and the significant women in their lives is revealed, and a web of complicity and duplicity begins to unravel.
