Publisher's Summary

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly calls The Thieves of Manhattan a “delicious satire of the literary world.” Here Adam Langer introduces Ian Minoit—an aspiring writer who just can’t seem to get published. When Ian’s successful girlfriend leaves him for the talentless hack Blade Markham—whose acclaimed memoir Ian is convinced is a fake—he can’t understand why he always gets the short end of the stick. Then an opportunity for revenge shows itself when an editor asks Ian to take his novel of murder and thievery and pass it off as a memoir.

Not well marketed

I got commercials for this on Fforde's Thursday Next books and on Portuguese Irregular Verbs. It is not humorous, nor amusingly satirical. Not in the same class as the things it was advertised on.
