about this item

“A digital age Edith Wharton . . . hilarious, exhilarating, and so, so clever.” —Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians **A Huffington Post, New York Post, Redbook, and MetroSummer Reading Pick** The Underwriting is a ****** glimpse into the boardrooms and bedrooms of six young hopefuls behind a Silicon Valley IPO that will launch them into the exclusive world of the über-wealthy—if it doesn’t destroy them first. Each of them is looking for success, but they may have to nail more than the deal to get to the top. Todd Kent loves Hook. The popular dating app lets him optimize his sex life while staying on track to become the youngest-ever managing director of Wall Street investment bank L.Cecil. Hook is the hottest startup in Silicon Valley right now, so when its eccentric founder taps Todd to lead the deal of the decade—Hook’s multibillion-dollar IPO—Todd hopes it will make his career. With just two months to pull it off, he assembles his team: brainy Neha, party-boy Beau, and mild-mannered Tara, who’s surprised to be picked—could it have something to do with the fact that she and Todd hooked up a few times back in college? Tara Taylor, now an L.Cecil VP, does all the right things: she runs six miles every morning, is never late for work, avoids gluten, exfoliates and waxes without overdoing it, yet is starting to wonder why she bothers. The Hook deal could be just the chance she needs to break out of her routine and jumpstart her career after six boyfriendless years of sacrifice. The stars are finally aligning for Nick Winthrop. Once a social wannabe—rejected from a Stanford frat by Todd Kent—Nick went on to become Hook’s CFO, and the chip on his shoulder is the only thing bigger than his ego. With Hook going public and $80 million about come his way, the life Nick knows he deserves is finally at his fingertips.But when a young woman dies, it threatens to throw the deal—and the lives of those involved—into a thrilling tailspin.The Underwriting is an insightful and prescient glimpse into the inner workings of two generation-defining worlds and might be the most accurate depiction yet of the tech generation and the power it holds to shape the future.
