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 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, New York Times bestselling authors of The Wife Between Us 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, Bestselling author of Give Me Your Hand Gripping and thoroughly unsettling: This one will be flying off the shelves.
--Kirkus 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 (STARRED Review) 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. Korelitz is an audacious writer who delivers on her promises. Her next big-screen adaptation surely awaits.
--Bookpage 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.
