THE OTHER STORY

Image of The Other Story
Author(s): 

This latest novel by the bestselling author of Sarah’s Key is a dark, haunting look at how a humble young man with devastating family secrets transforms into a vain international phenomenon practically overnight. de Rosnay tells two stories: that of Nicholas’ past and rise to stardom and that of his luxurious seaside vacation in present-day. Authors, writers and readers will love this gorgeously penned novel that borders on black comedy about vanity and the publishing industry. The Other Story is genuinely a cut above.

A few years ago, Nicholas Kolt published a novel that became an international bestseller and blockbuster film. Now a famous and highly sought-after author and celebrity, Nicholas’ face graces magazines covers and billboard advertisements around the world. While vacationing at a remote Tuscan seaside resort for the weekend, Nicholas hopes to find inspiration for his second book on a tight deadline. But the secrets of Nicholas’ past — on which his previous novel was based — haunt him and threaten to shatter his cozy and much-coveted lifestyle. (ST. MARTIN’S, Apr., 320 pp., $26.99)
