William Botchelko just Googled his real name – Alfred Botchelko. It turns out Alfred 'Botch' Botchelko is an infamous, reclusive poet who hasn’t published in years and has never been photographed. William, on the other hand, is a Kinko’s manager, married 16 years and a father of a teenage daughter he refers to as 'a snarling, nocturnal badger.'

Now, with his job, his marriage and his home in jeopardy, William must set out to find the real Botchelko.
