Jean Hanff Korelitz is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels The Plot, You Should Have Known (which aired on HBO in October 2020 as The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, and Donald Sutherland), Admission (adapted as a film in 2013 starring Tina Fey), The Devil and Webster, The White Rose, The Sabbathday River, and A Jury of Her Peers, as well as Interference Powder, a novel for children. Her company BookTheWriter hosts pop-up book groups in which small gatherings of readers discuss new books with their authors. The Latecomer: A Novel (Celadon Books) follows the story of the wealthy, New York City-based Oppenheimer family, from the first meeting of parents Salo and Johanna to their triplets born during the early days of IVF. As children, the siblings – Harrison, Lewyn, and Sally – feel no special familial bond and cannot wait to go their separate ways, even as their father becomes more distanced and their mother more desperate. When the triplets leave for college, Johanna decides to have a fourth child. What role will the “latecomer” play in this fractured family? Korelitz touches on grief and guilt, generational trauma, privilege and race, traditions and religion, and family dynamics in answering.
