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 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 . . .
'Jean 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.' – Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Female Persuasion
'It's a marvellous story full of plot twists, intricacies, and depth in events that the reader will not see coming. Perfect for fans of character-based novels such as those by Sally Rooney or Lauren Groff.' Library Journal
'Korelitz (The Plot) returns with an irresistible dramedy of errors about a singularly unhappy family. This is a sizzler.' – Publishers Weekly
'It's a slow burn, but this complex and layered story of the Oppenheimer family is worth hanging on.' – Good Housekeeping, The 30 Best and Most-Anticipated Books of 2022 (So Far)
