Selected as an Indie Next pick for May
A most anticipated book (AARP, Business Insider, Bustle, CrimeReads, Entertainment Weekly, LitHub, the New York Times, Oprah Daily, Parade, PopSugar, Wall Street Journal Magazine, and more!)
--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 The plot of 'The Plot' -- the best thriller of the year (so far) -- is too good to give away
--Washington Post "Korelitz's own plot is fiendishly clever, and here's the ultimate twist: that any novel about a writer's life (lonely, anxious drudgery) could be this wildly suspenseful and entertaining."
--People, Book of the Week "As a longtime fan of Korelitz's novels (including "You Should Have Known," which was made into HBO's "The Undoing"), I will say that I think The Plot is her gutsiest, most consequential book yet. It keeps you guessing and wondering, and also keeps you thinking: about ambition, fame and the nature of intellectual property (the analog kind)."
--The New York Times Book Review "'The Plot' is wickedly funny and chillingly grim...it deserves to garner all the brass rings.
--The Wall Street Journal 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.
--Booklist "Stay tuned to this devilishly compelling tale of ambition run amok."
--Oprah Daily "This staggeringly good literary thriller is about a staggeringly good literary thriller written by a failed novelist who has stolen the book's plot from a deceased student."
--Shelf Awareness The author behind suspense novel You Should Have Known turned-HBO-series The Undoing outdoes herself in this literary-centric thrill ride.
--Newsweek "Korelitz pulls off a true page-turner with, yes, a killer plot."
