Read a Teaser Teaser


This is a story about family, death, fame, conspiracy, and pickles. It is the result of the 16-16 experiment: 16 strangers writing a book together in 16 days.

The journey was grueling, and 2 dropped out, so it’s really the 14-16 experiment.

16% of the proceeds are donated to PEN America and the rest is distributed amongst the writers.

The writers are Elise van der Linde, Victoria Manifold, Topaz Winters, Evan Burton, LM Alder, Laura Yan, Jeremy Blachman, Madeline Gobbo, Sara Adams, Scherezade Siobhan, Chris Deliso, Miles Klee, Michael Magnes, and Chelsea Fonden.
