About the Book

The Undoing is the most talked about TV series of 2020. From the creators of Big Little Lies, starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland.

'A great psychological thriller ... I couldn't put it down.' Daisy Goodwin

‘Gripping . . . had me in its thrall from page one . . . Brilliant.’ Metro

A New York Times bestseller

Grace Sachs, a happily married therapist with a young son, thinks she knows everything about women, men and marriage. She is about to publish a book based on her pet theory: women don't value their intuition about men, leading to serious trouble later on.

But how well does Grace know her own husband? She is about to find out, and in the place of what she thought she knew, there will be a violent death, a missing husband, and a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for herself and her child.

“A great psychological thriller ... I couldn't put it down.”
- Daisy Goodwin
“Korelitz has managed to combine a nail-biting narrative with an astute exploration into why the people we lie to most are ourselves ... What a winning combination this is: highly recommended for Gone Girl fans who will have been disappointed by most of the other lame knock-offs currently on offer.”
- Evening Standard
