Product Description

Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of nine novels, including You Should Have Known (adapted as the 2020 HBO series The Undoing), and The Plot. She and her husband, poet Paul Muldoon, are the parents of two children and live in New York City.The new page-turner from the New York Times bestselling author of The Plot and You Should Have Known, which became the major hit series The Undoing "The Latecomer is consistently surprising. Its protagonists reinvent themselves with astonishing ingenuity. Fair warning to readers seeking "likable characters": The people here are fierce, and they fight dirty. The Oppenheimers dare you to love them - and even when you don't, you cannot look away. Korelitz combines moral inquiry with social satire. Like Wharton, she invites the reader to reflect, even as she paints a picture of privilege. A sumptuously wrapped gift, "The Latecomer" is a Gilded Age novel for the 21st century."Korelitz deftly limns this tension-riddled setup and the resulting Oppenheimer family dysfunction . . . The resolution, complete with a wedding, persuasively and touchingly affirms that even the most damaged people can grow and change.The New York Times bestselling author of The Plot (whose 2014 novel, You Should Have Known, was turned into the HBO series The Undoing) returns with a novel about a rich New York City family whose lives are upended when the parents decide to have a fourth child-when their triplets are 18. If you thrive on tales of dysfunction and privilege told with humor and tenderness-and let's face it, who doesn't?-it'll be tough to wait until May, the publication month for this eagerly awaited novelJean Hanff Korelitz is an ambidextrous writer: not only can she write a tight and absorbing literary thriller like The Plot, but with The Latecomer she draws us in again, this time with her ease, grace and wit, in a satisfying novel that spans generations, lives, and fates.It's a slow burn, but this complex and layered story of the Oppenheimer family is worth hanging on through every torturous turn.It is about luxury, misery, art and the pursuit of pleasure. Imagine being on the Orient Express as it slowly morphs into a rollercoaster. The result is a hell of a ride.A scintillatingly observant and witty novel of family disfunction.A satisfyingly sprawling saga . . . deliciously appealing. [Korelitz] is a writer of many talents.Each new twist triggers bright, witty insights into the complexities of sibling bonds as well as art, infidelity and more.An immersive tragicomedy, with all manner of unexpected twists and turns, that put me in mind of the work of writers such as Meg Wolitzer and Ann Patchett.Effervescently funny.A very satisfying read [with a] wry and incisive narrative voice.A major novel, with surprises, twists, wicked characterisation and so much more . . . This is modern American lit à la John Irving and a delight to read and engage with . . . One to savour.'Sparkling... funny, it is also cutting, a nearly forensic study of family conflict... both compulsively readable and thought-provoking.' New York Times

The Oppenheimer triplets have been reared with every advantage: wealth, education, and the determined attention of at least one of their parents. But they have been desperate to escape each other ever since they were born.

Now, on the verge of their departure for college and so close to their long-coveted freedom, the triplets are forced to contend with an unexpected complication: a fourth Oppenheimer sibling has just been born. What has possessed their parents to make such an unfathomable decision? The triplets can't begin to imagine the the power this little latecomer is about to exert - nor just how destructive she'll be to their plans . . .

'Korelitz draws us in again, this time with her ease, grace and wit, in a satisfying novel that spans generations, lives, and fates.' Meg Wolitzer
