In Isabel Colegate’s novel Deceits of Time, Catherine Hillery, a middle-aged widow and author of several well-respected biographies, is employed to write an authorized biography of deceased politician Neil Campion. While she is intrigued at the prospect (she met Neil once years before during her youth), she is also curious as to why she was selected by the Campion family as the author.
Catherine Hillery, a widow in her fifties, is hired by a solicitor for the Campion family to write the definitive biography of Neil Campion, a young Member of Parliament, a World War II pilot, and a man with an idealistic vision of what society could become.

The theme is not a particularly novel one, but Isabel Colegate explores it better than many. The novel is constructed from a number of brief episodes, which jump from character to character, and at first this mosaic-like composition might be a little disorienting. There are a few comedic moments, but not so many or so brilliant as to make the novel a comedy.
