“Robert, a thirtysomething insurance adjuster, brings three used classics to Book Traders bookstore to exchange. When he gets in return a book jacket with blank pages inside, he believes it to be an error. Nancy, the store owner and about Robert’s age, supplies him with another book, also blank. Even as Robert protests, satisfied and willfully oblivious customers come in to trade for more blank books. Finally, Robert fights back: armed with pens and ultimately a typewriter, he rebuilds-to the best of his recollection-the classic novels Nancy and her college-age nephew, Toto, have been disemboweling and replacing with white pages.
