The explosive debut novel—about family, power and privilege—from the creator of the award-winning Mad Men.

Mark and Karen Breakstone have constructed the idyllic life of wealth and status they always wanted, made complete by their beautiful and extraordinary daughter Heather. But they are still not quite at the top. When the new owners of the penthouse above them begin construction, an unstable stranger penetrates the security of their comfortable lives and threatens to destroy everything they’ve created.

Review Quotes

“A tour de force of control, tone, and razor-slash insight…I could not put it down.”

Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author

“Brief but with a big punch…Weiner paints a detailed, achingly insightful picture.”


“A lacerating novella.”

O, The Oprah Magazine

“An exciting debut novel with a fast-paced plot and plenty of suspense.”


The creator of Mad Men brings his keen eye and sharp characterizations to this spare, menacing story.

Family Circle

“A finely honed tale that highlights class conflict.”

Publisher’s Weekly

This short novel of upper-crust anomie and class-divide obsession is a scorcher! It's the classic noir construction: the short walk off the long ledge and the plummet to an indifferent Hell. Matthew Weiner demonically delivers the goods! Read this book in one gasping breath.James Ellroy, author of L.A. Confidential and PerfidiaShort and rapier-sharp, Matthew Weiner's HEATHER, THE TOTALITY compels and unnerves in equal measure. Like the great Patricia Highsmith, Weiner renders the disturbing not just plausible but exquisitely, agonizingly inevitable. A tour de force.Claire Messud, author of The Burning GirlA miraculous and fearless novel, Heather is unprecedented. As well as being smart, sharp and readable, it proves there are still fresh and exciting ways to write fiction.MJ Hyland, author of Carry Me DownChilling and poised, I loved itMaggie O'Farrell, author of This Must Be the Place
