Daniel Fischer has a secret. He knows he's a character in a book that's being written. He's the only one who knows, the only one who's aware of the author's presence—but what good does it do Daniel? He's just a minor character. The author seems much more interested in other people's lives. Now Daniel is determined to win a bigger part, and he'll do whatever it takes to get the author's attention and make this story his own.

Suspenseful, subversive, and hilarious, Being Written is an audaciously inventive literary turn that gleefully calls into question who we trust, what we believe, and how the stories of our lives are created.

What People are Saying About This

Akhil Sharma

“A white-knuckle thrill ride. You simply can’t put this book down once you’ve picked it up.”

Wilton Barnhardt

“Ionesco, eat your heart out. I suppose you could argue the hero is simply nuts, but I’d rather argue that William Conescu is simply a genius!”

Zachary Lazar

“BEING WRITTEN is a first novel of great charm, imagination, and wit. Conescu is a dextrous storyteller with a gift for wicked twists and a dazzlingly urbane sense of both drama and humor.”
