"Juicy, suspenseful, and irresistible, The Fiction Writer is a thrilling examination of the fine line between telling and retelling, and the impossibility of claiming ownership to any story. Daphne du Maurier herself would stay up late into the night, turning pages to discover all the delicious and surprising twists in this wonderfully inventive novel."
- Nina de Gramont, New York Times Bestselling author of The Christie Affair

"A sultry and mesmerizing novel that transforms the iconic Malibu coastline into the perfect gothic backdrop, The Fiction Writer will have the reader second guessing everything they thought they knew about the fictional Asherwood family as well as the real-life Daphne du Maurier."
- Katy Hays, New York Times bestselling author of The Cloisters

"Jillian Cantor's immersive and thought-provoking new novel, The Fiction Writer is no ordinary retelling of Rebbeca. Instead, Cantor delivers a layered, inventive tale that uses the beloved classic to question who owns a story and who gets to tell it. I loved escaping into this atmospheric and suspenseful story. A must-read for readers and writers alike."
- Amy Meyerson, bestselling author of The Bookshop of Yesterdays

"Sexy, sinister and smart. I stayed up all night to finish this addictive novel. It's compulsive and clever, deeply atmospheric and also asks insightful questions about the nature of storytelling and creativity."
- Natasha Solomon, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Rosaline
