Product Description

Jean Hanff Korelitz was born and raised in New York City and educated at Dartmouth College and Clare College, Cambridge. She is the author of seven novels, including The Devil and Webster, You Should Have Known (adapted as the 2020 HBO series The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland), Admission (adapted as the 2013 film of the same name, starring Tina Fey, Lily Tomlin and Paul Rudd), The White Rose, The Sabbathday River and A Jury of Her Peers. With Paul Muldoon she adapted James Joyce's The Dead as an immersive theatrical event, The Dead 1904. She and her husband, poet Paul Muldoon, are the parents of two children and live in New York City. A new novel, The Latecomer, will be published in 2022.The autumn's most thrilling page-turner from the author of The Undoing, the major series on HBO and SkySmart, surprising and stealthily unsettling.[Korelitz's] gutsiest, most consequential book yet.[A] wickedly clever tale of stolen genius.A twisty page-turner (yes, I stayed up nearly all night to finish it.)he Plot is one of the best novels I've ever read about writers and writing. It's also insanely readable and the suspense quotient is through the roof. It's remarkable.From its first pages, Jean Hanff Korelitz's The Plot ensnares you in a rich tangle of literary vanities, treachery and fraud. Psychologically acute and breathtakingly suspenseful, you'll find yourself rushing towards a finale both astonishing and utterly earned.The Plot is so well-crafted and compelling it's nearly impossible to put down. Clever and chilling, this page-turner grabs you from the first chapter and doesn't let you go until its startling, breath-taking conclusion.Deep character development, an impressively thick tapestry of intertwining story lines, and a candid glimpse into the publishing business make this a page-turner of the highest order. Korelitz deserves acclaim for her own perfect plot.Korelitz, author of the smash-hit You Should Have Known (2014), effortlessly deconstructs the campus novel and, much like Michael Chabon in Wonder Boys (1995), acerbically mocks the publishing industry. Fearless Korelitz presents a wry and unusual joyride of a thriller full of gasp-inducing twists as it explores copyright, ownership, and the questionable morals of writers.Not every 350-page novel can be torn through in a weekend, but readers may find themselves batting away sleep and setting an alarm for early the next day to continue Jean Hanff Korelitz's propulsive literary thriller . . .The Plot is an ingenious piece of storytelling . . . Korelitz is an audacious writer who delivers on her promises. Her next big-screen adaptation surely awaits.Wickedly clever.To say the end of the story is a real twist would be a huge understatement and certainly an ending that was not expected. The Plot is hard to put down and worth the (short) time it takes to read it.The plot of The Plot is so ingenious that it should be assigned as required reading in the very MFA programs it pinions, both as a model of superior narrative construction and as a warning of the grim realities of the literary life to naive wannabe writers.Wickedly funny and chillingly grim, and like the novel Evan hoped to create, it deserves to garner all the brass rings. At once a close-to-the-bone satire on publishing, an inquiry into the ethics of storytelling and a propulsive upmarket thriller.From the author of The Undoing

'Remarkable.' Stephen King
'Breathtakingly suspenseful.' Megan Abbott
'Smart, surprising and stealthily unsettling.' The Times

When a young writer dies before completing his first novel, his teacher, Jake, (himself a failed novelist) helps himself to its plot. The resulting book is a phenomenal success. But what if somebody out there knows?

Somebody does. And if Jake can't figure out who he's dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.
