This one-of-a-kind bestseller from J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst captures the excitement of solving a mystery like no other book: "Both as literature and as a physical object, S. is a profound and tremendous work of art" (Miami Herald).

One book. Two readers. A world of mystery, menace, and desire.

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 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.

"The best-looking book I've ever seen." --The New Yorker .

3rd printing. Octavo inn printed cardstock case. Seal has been opened, though it is difficult to tell whether this has actually been read. One of the stranger concepts of the last few decades and possibly one of the most pretentious This has been manufactured to look like a much used ex-library edition front 1949, when in fact it was published 2013 with all the 'defects' part of the packaging. Includes 22 loose page inserts (letters, photos, postcards, and more) and all 22 seem to be present. Abrams and Dorst collaborate under the pseudonym V.M Straka. Grey cloth with black lettering and yellow and white design. [456 pages]
