The Lifespan of a Fact

Jim Fingal is a determined, fresh-out-of Harvard fact checker who’s about to stir up trouble at a prominent yet sinking New York magazine. Jim’s demanding editor, Emily Penrose, has given him a daunting assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking essay by a celebrated but unorthodox writer, John D’Agata, that could save the magazine from collapse. In this dazzling comedy of conflict set in the high-stakes world of publishing, the three end up in a battle royal between facts and truth that yields undeniably provocative consequences.
