Native New Yorker! Graduated from Dartmouth College and Clare College, Cambridge. I'm the author of eight novels: THE PLOT (The Tonight Show's "Summer Reads" pick for 2021), THE LATECOMER (to be published in May, 2022), THE UNDOING, originally published as YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN (adapted by David E. Kelley for HBO and starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland), ADMISSION (adapted as the 2013 film of the same name, starring Tina Fey, Lily Tomlin and Paul Rudd), THE DEVIL AND WEBSTER, THE WHITE ROSE, THE SABBATHDAY RIVER and A JURY OF HER PEERS, as well as a middle-grade reader, INTERFERENCE POWDER, and a collection of poetry, THE PROPERTIES OF BREATH.

Watch for television adaptations of THE PLOT and THE LATECOMER!

Why, because Portia experiences profound emotional after-effects of her decision? How could she not? You don't just walk away from an experience like that. But "anti-adoption" is an extraordinary interpretation, I think. I've been asked if I'm anti-choice BECAUSE a character gives up a newborn for adoption. I thought that was pretty bizarre, too. (When a Catholic magazine "lauded" ADMISSION for being "Pro-Life" because the protagonist chooses not to have an abortion, I did what you never do: responded to a review, because I was that furious about it.) For the record: I am ardently pro-choice (which means, at least to me, also pro-adoption). Besides, who on earth could "personally disagree with adoption"? Are there actually people who do? (less)

The Plot (May 11, 2021)

THE PLOT is published on May 11th and I couldn't be more thrilled by the early response. Thanks to so many of you who read and reviewed the book in anticipation of publication. (I have now thoroughly processed the term: "slow burn".)

A note to anyone interested in following my reviews on GOODREADS: I likely won't see your follow request, so don't be shocked if I don't respond. (You won't be missin Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Jean Hanff Korelitz  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There is a sound to waiting. It sounds like held breath pounding its fists against the walls of the lung, damp and muffled beats.”
Jean Hanff Korelitz, Admission

“Good writers borrow, great writers steal. —T. S. Eliot (but possibly stolen from Oscar Wilde)”
Jean Hanff Korelitz, The Plot: A Novel

“Once you were in possession of an actual idea, you owed it a debt for having chosen you, and not some other writer, and you paid that debt by getting down to work, not just as a journeyman fabricator of sentences but as an unshrinking artist ready to make painful, time-consuming, even self-flagellating mistakes.”
Jean Hanff Korelitz, The Plot
