Shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize 2022 When a bestseller-to-be cuts too close to reality, its author must make a Faustian bargain - both on the page and in real life. 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. A blazing debut novel blurring the lines of fact and fiction: a thrilling story of fame, fortune, and impossible choices.
