The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas
The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas is a perfect book for writers to read. It covers most of the prickly topics that writers who belong to a writing group deal with: fear of sharing their work, critique of their writing, praise, rejection, and in this case, plagiarism.
The small writing circle has the following members: Nancy, the newest member who is writing a novel; Chris, a successful thriller author; Gillian, a world-famous poet; Bernard, a biographer who was married to fellow member Virginia, a historian; and Adam, a young novelist who may never finish his novel.
Members of this writing group's personal lives are intertwined and tangled. The actions of one member cause a division in the group that will never be repaired. But as horrible as the ending is, it's satisfying in just the right way.
