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.


What readers are saying

'It builds to a legitimately great ending that I may never forget. Highly recommended.'

'This book is thrilling, exciting and totally nerve-racking! It definitely had me on the edge of my seat and reading well past my bedtime.'

'Addictive . . . I read it quickly without coming up much for air.'

'Wow! This book blew me away- I read it so fast and the ending is so good! No spoilers- just read it.'

'I was pleasantly surprised to find that the best plot ever really is THAT good.'

 

Review

Smart, surprising and stealthily unsettling. - Sunday Times

[Korelitz's] gutsiest, most consequential book yet. - New York Times

[A] wickedly clever tale of stolen genius. - LitHub

A twisty page-turner (yes, I stayed up nearly all night to finish it.) - Financial Times

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. -- 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

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

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. - Booklist

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. - BookPage

Wickedly clever. - CrimeReads

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. - New York Journal of Books

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

Book Description
