From the publisher

'Sparkling... funny, it is also cutting, a nearly forensic study of family conflict... both compulsively readable and thought-provoking.' New York Times The Oppenheimer triplets have been reared with every advantage: wealth, education, and the determined attention of at least one of their parents. But they have been desperate to escape each other ever since they were born. Now, on the verge of their departure for college and so close to their long-coveted freedom, the triplets are forced to contend with an unexpected complication: a fourth Oppenheimer sibling has just been born. What has possessed their parents to make such an unfathomable decision? The triplets can't begin to imagine the the power this little latecomer is about to exert - nor just how destructive she'll be to their plans . . . 'Korelitz draws us in again, this time with her ease, grace and wit, in a satisfying novel that spans generations, lives, and fates.' Meg Wolitzer FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE UNDOING - NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES What readers are saying: 'Powerful, beautifully written, and well plotted.' 'Think Succession meets The Goldfinch...such captivating characters and plot with an excellent ending.' 'You don't want to skim over a single word of the exquisitely woven story.' 'This book will definitely stay with me for a long time. I loved it.'
