Blurb: S. is a 2013 novel written by Doug Dorst and conceived by J.J. Abrams. The novel is unusual in its format, presented as a story within a story. It is composed of the fictional novel Ship of Theseus by a fictional author, and hand-written notes filling the book's margins as a dialogue between two college students hoping to uncover the author's mysterious identity and the novel's secret. Concurrent with the students' timeline of reading and annotating the novel, postcards, handwritten letters, maps, and photocopied articles and book excerpts are physically folded and inserted between the book's bound pages as Jen and Eric provide evidence and clues to one another while exchanging the book. S. has been called "part work of art, literary experiment, and love letter to the physical expression of books. 

S., conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst, is the chronicle of two readers finding each other in the margins of a book and enmeshing themselves in a deadly struggle between forces they don’t understand, and it is also Abrams and Dorst’s love letter to the written word.
