Customer Reviews

“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.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Gripping and thoroughly unsettling: This one will be flying off the shelves.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Korelitz . . . 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.”
