The Abstract opens with a description of its protagonist, Brandon, âpassing time from young to oldâ as he plods up and down the streets of an unnamed town.

Brandon buys a suit from a clearance store, hires an interpreter, and begins contacting people under the pretense that he is a foreign journalist writing about the local arts scene. The project ends uneventfully when he runs out of money. Some time later, our hero decides to steal the story that enchanted him most, incidentally about a foreigner becoming an object of public attention, and pass himself off as its author in order to attract the respect and affection that he desires once and for all.
