The Windup Girl is DONE

Just shipped it out to my agent. The final word count is 140,000 after a 12,000-word haircut in the last round of revisions, and I am very happy to have the thing out of my hands. I was starting to rearrange sentences and individual words, and then re-rearrange them, so it was time to let go.


  1. Congratulations. I look forward to reading it.

  2. Congratulations!

  3. I think you misplaced a comma on page 243. You’d better check.

  4. I think I misplaced a couple chapters, too.
