In August, , Mallory left Little, Brown. The terms of his departure are covered by a nondisclosure agreement. Mallory was not fired. This fact points to the strength of employee protections in the U. Or an oar. When Mallory left, many of his colleagues were unaware of any unpleasantness. There was even a small, awkward dinner in his honor.
Two weeks before Mallory left Little, Brown, it was announced that he had accepted a job in New York, as an executive editor at William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins. Publishing professionals estimate that his starting salary was at least two hundred thousand dollars a year. That fall, he moved into an apartment in a sixty-floor tower, with a pool, in midtown, and into an office at Morrow, on Fifty-third Street. Some book editors immerse themselves in text; others focus on making deals. Mallory was firmly of the latter type, and specialized in acquiring established authors who had an international reach.
At some point that winter, Mallory stopped coming into the office. This mystified colleagues, who were given no explanation. Writing from a Gmail address, Jake said that Dan would be going to the hospital the next day, for the removal of a tumor. Please keep him in your thoughts. That e-mail appears to have been addressed exclusively to contacts in the U. He says that he is looking forward to being fitted with a spinal-fluid drain and that this will render him half-man, half-machine.
Recipients wrote back in distress. After all, who would fabricate such a story? I sent books and sympathies. The next week, Dan wrote to Chris Parris-Lamb, the agent. Like Tom Ripley writing letters that were taken as the work of the murdered Dickie Greenleaf, Dan was apparently communicating with friends in a fictional voice. Jake Mallory is thirty-five. In it, she and Jake, who got married that summer, look happy and hopeful. Jake Mallory did not respond to requests for comment.
However, the tumor appears to have been completely removed. The ventriloquism is halfhearted. While in a New York hospital, Dan was a dot on the map, exposed to visitors. Reports from the ward would require the clutter of realist fiction: medical devices, doctors with names. The pain is apparently quite severe, but he is on medicine. He will most likely be going home today.
Not when sober, at any rate. Mallory suggested meeting the agent for drinks, or dinner, a week or two later. While this setback is not welcome it is not permanent either, and at least Dan can now say he has had two lucky escapes in the space of two months. This would daunt a mere mortal but not my brother. I want for him to do the same, although I understand that he is tired of having to rebound from things. A week later, in an apparent attempt at a reset, Dan Mallory wrote a breezy group e-mail under his own name.
When Mallory returned to work that spring, after several weeks, nothing was said. After his return, Mallory came to work on a highly irregular schedule. Unlike other editors, he rarely attended Wednesday-afternoon editorial meetings. Mallory bought a one-bedroom apartment in Chelsea, for six hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars.
The kids realize it, and of course nobody believes them. I recently spoke with Victoria Sanders, an agent who represents Karin Slaughter, the thriller writer. In , Slaughter signed a three-book deal, for more than ten million dollars, involving Mallory and a British counterpart. Mallory said that he was now well, except for an eye problem. His eye began to twitch.
They discussed plans, already set in motion in London, for Hannah to write the first official Agatha Christie continuation novel. William Morrow would publish it in the U. Hannah, who lives in Cambridge, recently said by phone that they quickly became friends. Hannah seems to have found, in Mallory, a remarkable source of material. Scotcher is a charming young flatterer who has told everyone that he is terminally ill, with kidney disease. A seductive man lies about a fatal disease, then defends the lie by pretending to be his brother. She also admitted that the character of Kimpton, the American doctor, owes something to her former editor.
One was left with the impression that every third or fourth word he uttered was a source of delight to him. She had, however, hired a detective to investigate a graffiti problem in Cambridge. I said that I found this hard to believe. All this encouraged the thought that the novelist now writing as Agatha Christie had hired a detective to investigate her editor, whom she suspected of lying about a fatal disease. Hannah—who, according to several people who know her, has a great appetite for discussing Mallory at parties—also seems to have made fictional use of him in her non-Poirot writing.
An American woman in mid-career, a psychologist with a Ph. She has been there for about a year, after a personal trauma. If she tries to go outside, the world spins. She drinks too much, and recklessly combines alcohol and anti-anxiety medication. Police officers distrust her judgment. Online, she plays chess and contributes to a forum for stress-sufferers, a place where danger lies.
In the summer of , Mallory has said, he was at home for some weeks, adjusting to a new medication. Mallory is more cogent when reflecting on his shrewdness regarding the marketplace—when he talks about his novel in the voice of a startup C. Mallory has said that he favored the pseudonym A. Mallory has described writing a seventy-five-hundred-word outline and showing it to Jennifer Joel, a literary agent at I. He has said that he then worked for a year, sustained by Adderall, Coca-Cola, and electronic music. Mallory told the Times that he wrote at night and on the weekends.
Former colleagues who had taken note of his office absences were skeptical of this claim. By the summer of , it had sold 4. Early that September, just before the release of the film adaptation, it was No. Finn, was e-mailed to editors in New York and London. The story feels transposed to New York from a more tranquil place, like North Oxford.
