'Why don't you go out and look for a job?' 'Oh no,' I thought. (p. 5)
The main character Frank is a writer but even though he begins lots of books, he doesn't finish all of them. Therefore, his wife Teresa gets angry at him about it. One day, while Teresa is away for work, Frank gets a letter from the USA and it says that they want to make a movie of the book Frank wrote before. This excites Frank and he decides to meet Mel Parks, who works for a movie corporation. And then they reach an agreement on it. However, Frank doesn't like a computer or use it, so Mel surprisingly buys a state-of-the-art one for Frank. It is equipped with artificial intelligence and very useful. It makes Frank's typing easier, but there is going to be a lot of problems... The ending of this story is really unexpected, so read it!
