Product Details


**A Huffington Post, New York Post and Metro Summer Reading Pick**

“Michelle Miller is a master at pacing—this tour de force gathers speed as it heats up. Adrenaline junkies, take note: You’re in for a wild ride.”

“A Silicon Valley/Wall Street crew is living proof that more money = more problems.”

“You’d think it would be hard to write a rip-roaring novel that actually elicited our sympathy towards investment bankers—but Michelle Miller has managed it. Miller not only gets the reader to care about [their] anxieties and secret desires . . . she also spins an exciting piece of intrigue.”
The Guardian (U.S.)

“I’m going to be honest: it’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and read a book. That ended after I picked up The Underwriting. But from the very first paragraph, I was hooked. It’s sharp, sexy, smart, and everything else you need for a perfect summer thriller. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the next book to land a huge movie deal.”
—Lindsey Sirera, E! News Online

“A salacious, ripped-from-the-headlines tell-all of Manhattan’s young, wealthy, and über-successful. Get ready to settle in—you won’t be able to put down this book.”
—Lauren Weisberger, bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada

“A more intricate Devil Wears Prada for the tech generation.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Combine[s] the best of Millennial technologies and Wall Street greed . . . Readers will find this a quick, entertaining read.”
Publishers Weekly

“Miller . . . us[es] storytelling to explore topics like the Silicon Valley gender gap.”

“This fast-paced corporate thriller offers a riveting glimpse into the world of Silicon Valley start-ups, Wall Street investment firms, and today’s techy Millennial generation.”
Library Journal (starred review)

“Reading this book was better than snorting a key bump of Adderall. I hated how much I loved it.”
—Babe Walker, New York Times–bestselling author of White Girl Problems

“Reading this book was such a thrill, I was as sleep deprived as Michelle Miller’s Adderall-fueled characters but having way more fun. Like a digital age Edith Wharton, Miller brilliantly chronicles the clash of cultures between high finance and high tech with perfect intricacy and nuance. Hilarious, exhilarating, and so, so clever.”
—Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians

The Underwriting offers a tantalizing glimpse into the boardrooms and bedrooms of the young financiers and entrepreneurs behind a Silicon Valley IPO. Both a corporate thriller and an exposé of two generation-defining worlds, I found it sexy and smart. I was hooked from start to finish.”
—Cristina Alger, author of The Darlings

The Underwriting is the best one-night stand I’ve ever had. Witty, sexy, and sharp—I’d definitely call the next day. An authentically hip novel with razor-sharp characters which make it (in banking terms) a STRONG BUY.”
—Turney Duff, New York Times–bestselling author of The Buy Side

“The Underwriting rolls out an irresistible tale about those narcissistic characters you read about who ride the waves between Wall Street and Silicon Valley and inflict us all with their dreams of riches and fame.”
—Bruce Porter, New York Times–bestselling author of Blow

“Juicy and well written in a fast-moving way . . . [A] funny, true, sympathetic and unsavoury observation about the world of finance and hi-tech . . . A terrific read.”
The Times (UK)

 “A salacious corporate thriller.”
