Jacob Finch Bonner is a published author who has been struggling to write his next novel. To make ends meet, he is teaching at a small obscure MFA program. When an arrogant student shares that he is working on a book that he knows will land on all the best seller lists, Jacob is highly skeptical and irritated…until he hears the plot. Many years later Jacob learns that the student died and never published the book. Jacob convinces himself that the story should still be told and he is the one to tell it. That is just the beginning of this wonderfully twisty plot-within-a-plot that pokes fun at the publishing world while raising questions about intellectual property. Just the right kind of book I needed for the end of summer. — Holly (RBB Staff)
