S., a novel conceived of and developed by J.J. Abrams and written by award-winning author Doug Dorst, is Abrams’ first foray into publishing and will be released by Mulholland Books/Little, Brown and Company on October 29, 2013. At the core of this multilayered literary puzzle of love and adventure is a book of mysterious provenance. In the margins, another tale unfolds—through the hand-scribbled notes, questions, and confrontations of two readers. Between the pages, online, and in the real world, you’ll find evidence of their interaction, ephemera that bring this tale vividly to life.
As part of its promotion, here we have “The first clue to the mystery” - a postcard from Brazil.
