THE AUTUMN'S MOST THRILLING PAGE-TURNER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE UNDOING, THE MAJOR SERIES ON HBO AND SKY.
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?
And if Jake can’t figure out who he’s dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.
'The 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.' – Stephen King
'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.' – Megan Abbott
'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.' – Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
'[Korelitz's] gutsiest, most consequential book yet.' – New York Times
'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.' – Washington Post
'Wickedly funny and chillingly grim, and like the novel Evan hoped to create, it deserves to garner all the brass rings.' – Wall Street Journal
