‘Wickedly funny: I loved it’ PATRICK GALE ‘Superbly written, darkly funny and gripping from the first page. I absolutely loved it’ EMMA STONEX Caleb Horowitz is twenty-seven, and his wildest dreams are about to come true. His manuscript has caught the attention of the literary agent, who offers him fame, fortune and a taste of the literary life. He can’t wait for his book to be shopped around to every editor in New York, except one: Avi Dietsch, a college rival and the novel’s ‘inspiration.’
When Avi gets his hands on the manuscript, he sees nothing but theft – and opportunity. And so Caleb is forced to make a Faustian bargain, one that tests his theories of success, ambition and the limits of art.
