The book is a "dark fable set in contemporary Manhattan"
Little, Brown and Company announced on Wednesday that it will publish Weiner’s first novel, Heather, the Totality. A press release described the book as “a dark fable set in contemporary Manhattan” in which “three people from two worlds who are on a collision course in pursuit of a beautiful child.” Editor Judith Clain said the novel “brings to mind Edgar Allan Poe and Henry James and yet is utterly modern.”
Heather, the Totality is expected to be published in the fall of 2017.
