The chronicle of two readers finding each other, and their deadly struggle with forces beyond their understanding--all within the margins of a book conceived by "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" director J.J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst. The book: "Ship of Theseus, " the final novel by a prolific but enigmatic writer named V.M. Straka, in which a man with no past is shanghaied onto a strange ship with a monstrous crew and launched onto a disorienting and perilous journey. The writer: Straka, the incendiary and secretive subject of one of the world's greatest mysteries, a revolutionary about whom the world knows nothing apart from the words he wrote and the rumors that swirl around him. The readers: Jennifer and Eric, a college senior and a disgraced grad student, both facing crucial decisions about who they are, who they might become, and how much they're willing to trust another person with their passions, hurts, and fears. "S." contains 22 inserts and will be delivered in a sealed slipcase.

Review quote

""S. "is gorgeous, a masterpiece of verisimilitude. . . . The book's spiritual cousin is A.S. Byatt's "Possession." . . . The brilliance of "S." is less in its showy exterior than the intimate and ingeniously visual way it shows how others' words become pathways to our lives and relationships." --"Washington Post"
