Trust is a sweeping, unpredictable novel about power, wealth and truth, set against the backdrop of turbulent 1920s New York. Perfect for fans of Succession.
Can one person change the course of history?
A Wall Street tycoon takes a young woman as his wife. Together they rise to the top in an age of excess and speculation. But now a novelist is threatening to reveal the secrets behind their marriage, and this wealthy man’s story – of greed, love and betrayal – is about to slip from his grasp.
Composed of four competing versions of this deliciously deceptive tale, Trust by Hernan Diaz brings us on a quest for truth while confronting the lies that often live buried in the human heart.
‘One of the great puzzle-box novels, it’s the cleverest of conceits, wrapped up in a page-turner’ – Telegraph
‘Genius’ – Lauren Groff, author of Matrix
Brilliant . . . Destined to be known as one of the great puzzle-box novels, it’s the cleverest of conceits, wrapped up in a page-turner
Fascinating . . . Diaz could master any genre and Trust is metafiction at its best, unpredictable, clever and massively enjoyable
Genius . . . You’re propelled forward by the twists and turns of the novel’s form, the conviction that Diaz has another trick up his sleeve
