"Jean Hanff Korelitz's The Plot is a psychologically suspenseful novel about a story too good not to steal, and the writer who steals it. Jacob Finch Bonner was once a promising young novelist with a respectably published first book. Today, he's teaching in a third-rate MFA program and struggling to maintain what's left of his self-respect; he hasn't written-let alone published-anything decent in years. When Evan Parker, his most arrogant student, announces he doesn't need Jake's help because the plot of his book in progress is a sure thing, Jake is prepared to dismiss the boast as typical amateur narcissism. But then . . . he hears the plot. Jake returns to the downward trajectory of his own career and braces himself for the supernova publication of Evan Parker's first novel: but it never comes. When he discovers that his former student has died, presumably without ever completing his book, Jake does what any self-respecting writer would do with a story like that-a story that absolutely needs to be told. In a few short years, all of Evan Parker's predictions have come true, but Jake is the author enjoying the wave. He is wealthy, famous, praised and read all over the world. But at the height of his glorious new life, an e-mail arrives, the first salvo in a terrifying, anonymous campaign: You are a thief, it says. As Jake struggles to understand his antagonist and hide the truth from his readers and his publishers, he begins to learn more about his late student, and what he discovers both amazes and terrifies him. Who was Evan Parker, and how did he get the idea for his "sure thing" of a novel? What is the real story behind the plot, and who stole it from whom?"--… (meer)

The same plot interwoven thrice. Modestly interesting ( )

A really fun read. I figured out part of the the twist, but was still surprised by the overall ending. ( )

Jake Bonner enjoyed some success with his first book, but since then he's been unable to realize any decent sales. He takes a short-term teaching job at a MFA writing program to make ends meets. While there, one of his students shares a book idea with him. Years later, the book still hasn't made an appearance, so Jake does some research and discovers that his student had an untimely death shortly after this teaching gig ended. That book idea should be shared, right? Jake publishes a block-buster based on his students idea. Only later does he realize that the idea was semi-autobiographical and that some of the characters he wrote about are actually alive and not terribly happy to have been written about. ( )

I might have enjoyed it more if I hadn't figured out the two biggest twists well before I should have. Perfectly good light read, if lacking in non-white and straight people. Has some decent skewering of writers and writing programs, though I would have loved a bit more on the one student whose prose was excellent in the face of all logic. I liked the ways she varied a single plot premise as well. ( )

Jacob Finch Bonner, the once promising author of the "New & Noteworthy" (The New York Times Book Review) novel The Invention of Wonder, let himself into the office he'd been assigned on the second floor of Richard Peng Hall, set his beat-up leather satchel on the barren desk, and looked around in something akin to despair.
