From the back:

"It is not until after former literary prodigy E. Robert Pendleton's failed suicide attempt that his brilliant novel, Scream, is discovered in his basement. With a gruesome real-life unsolved murder at its core, the novel's publication causes a storm of publicity, pulling a young graduate student and a rival author into the media frenzy. Soon questions begin to be asked: How did Pendleton know the case so well? And why did he bury Scream in his basement? Pendleton can't respond; his suicide attempt has left him all but comatose. Enter Jon Ryder, a detective with scandals in his own past, and the hunt for the murderer is on.

A profound, darkly funny novel anchored by a gripping thriller, Death of a Writer explores the price of fame, the turmoil of academic life, and the precarious position of literature in American society."

I didn't find this funny or gripping or brilliant, just boring. If I hadn't had this as a holiday read, I'd have abandoned after the first 50 pages or so...
