Zwei Schriftstellerfreunde in London sind durch die Mißgunst des Schicksals zu erbitterten Feinden geworden. Richard Tull, der echte Autor, ist geschlagen von Erfolglosigkeit und hält seine Familie als Rezensent drittklassiger Biographien über Wasser, während Gwyn Barry, der Schmonzettenlieferant, sein Bestsellerglück genießt - bis Richard beschließt, etwas dagegen zu unternehmen. Information ist eine bitterböse Satire auf den Literaturbetrieb, aber vor allem eine Männergeschichte, eine Jagdszene aus der Mitte des Lebens, einer Zeit der Empfindlichkeit, der überlebten Gefühle, der sauer gewordenen Träume; es wird Bilanz gezogen, und das Ergebnis ist zum Heulen.
