Underwriting

Author(s): Michelle Miller (Pennsylvania State University, USA)

General

Get rich. Get laid. Get even. Todd Kent is young, hot, and on his way to the top of Wall Street when the eccentric founder of Hook, the popular new dating app, handpicks him to lead its floating on the stock exchange. Given just two months to pull it off, Todd and his investment banking team - brainy Neha, party-boy Beau, and old college flame Tara Taylor - race to close the $14 billion deal of the decade. It's also the chance of a lifetime for Tara, who sees her opportunity to break through the glass ceiling and justify six years of sacrifices for her career. But nothing is what it seems in Silicon Valley, and when tragedy strikes there's no telling where the sparks will fly. 'Michelle Miller's debut novel reads like a salacious, ripped-from-the headlines tell-all of Manhattan's young, wealthy, and uber-successful...Get ready to settle in-you won't be able to put down this book.' Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada 'The Underwriting is the best one night stand I've ever had. Witty, sexy and sharp - I'd definitely call the next day. An authentically-hip novel with razor sharp characters which make it (in banking terms) a STRONG BUY.' Turney Duff, New York Times bestselling author of The Buy Side 'Reading this book was such a thrill, I was as sleep deprived as Michelle Miller's Adderall-fueled characters but having way more fun. Like a digital age Edith Wharton, Miller brilliantly chronicles the clash of cultures between high finance and high tech with perfect intricacy and nuance. Hilarious, exhilarating, and so, so clever, I'd rate The Underwriting a STRONG BUY!' Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians

Both a corporate thriller and an expose of two generation-defining worlds, I found it both sexy and smart. I was hooked from start to finish.' -- Cristina Alger, author of The Darlings 'Reading this book was better than snorting a key bump of Adderall. I hated how much I loved it.' -- Babe Walker, New York Times bestselling author of White Girl Problems 'The Underwriting is the best one night stand I've ever had. Witty, sexy and sharp-I'd definitely call the next day. An authentically-hip novel with razor sharp characters which make it (in banking terms) a STRONG BUY.' -- Turney Duff, New York Times bestselling author of The Buy Side 'Reading this book was such a thrill, I was as sleep deprived as Michelle Miller's Adderall-fueled characters but having way more fun.

Kirkus 'The Underwriting, in the midst of entertaining the reader, never forgets its real purpose: to puncture entitlement with the nastiest sting in the tail available.' Guardian 'Juicy and compelling.' Daily Mail UK 'There was nothing I could fault in this book. The characters were vivid, flawed, carefully crafted; you loved to hate them and even deliriously admired them at times...The plot was fast-moving and fluid; I was carried away with it and thoroughly caught up in the chaos until the final page.' Delightful Books Reviews 'This is The Wolf of Wall Street for the digital age.' Marie Claire 'Juicy and well written in a fast-moving way...A terrific read.' Saturday Times
