The publisher described the book as “an epic romantic comedy of manners set in New York City, exploring how technology has changed the way we connect to the world and each other”. Speaking about the book’s plot, Bays said, “I wanted to tell a story about the place we go when we are lying in bed or sitting on the subway, the place where so much of life happens now.”

He added, “We fall in love there, we buy socks there, we fight wars there, and we meet some pretty cute animals there too. We’re even there right now, me writing this and you reading it. I asked myself what kind of novel Jane Austen would write about all this stuff, and the result is The Mutual Friend.”

As per The Hollywood Reporter, executive editor, Maya Ziv from the Dutton imprint of Penguin Random House acquired North American rights from Daniel Greenberg at the Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency. Ziv said, “Carter Bays knows how to tell a story and build an unforgettable cast, and in his first novel he completely captures the choreography of navigating life and love in the smartphone age.”

“This novel is warm and relatable with characters who feel real and encounter universal themes and broader societal questions…including their relationship with their phones. We are so proud to be publishing Carter’s debut at Dutton,” she concluded.
