Plot Development: A Presentation by Jean Hanff Korelitz

New York Times best-selling author Jean Hanff Korelitz will discuss how her ideas about plot developed over the years as she wrote You Should Have Known, The Plot, and The Latecomer.

Korelitz’s novel The Plot raises questions about appropriation and who has the right to tell someone else’s story.  “To plagiarise language is to be boiled in oil as far as I’m concerned,” Korelitz says. “But there’s a murkier thing when it comes to the story” (The Guardian, July 23, 2021).

She will also share her observations on the movie adaptations of her work. You Should Have Known was adapted as HBO’s 2020 limited series, The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant,
