Mary Carmichael, a Duke classmate and his editor at TowerView , told me that Mallory was now likely to sweep into a room. He later said that he had never had the condition. This is the point—of course—at which the father of the house walked in!
In subsequent interviews, Mallory does not seem to have brought up this bathroom again. But the exchange gives a glimpse of the temptations and risks of hyperbole: how, under even slight pressure, an exaggeration can become further exaggerated. For a speaker more invested in advantage than in accuracy, such fabulation could be exhilarating—and might even lead to the dispatch, by disease, of a family member.
The meeting continued, as a conference call. Get down! He took courses on twentieth-century literature and wrote a thesis on detective fiction. And his e-mails to me were like that, too; they were always very amusing. As Kelly recalled, by the end of the two-year course Mallory was making frequent trips to America, apparently to address serious medical issues. He applied to be an assistant to Linda Marrow, the editorial director of Ballantine, an imprint of Random House known for commercial fiction. He later said that he had once had brain cancer himself. Mallory was given the job.
These registered as messages of disdain, or as territorial marking. Mallory was suspected of responsibility but was not challenged. No similar cups were found after he quit. A few months later, after Mallory had moved to Oxford, his former employers noticed unexplained spending, at Amazon. When confronted, Mallory acknowledged that he had used the card, but insisted that it was in error. He added that he was experiencing a recurrence of cancer. Highsmith subverts all that. Through some alchemy, she persuades us to root for sociopaths.
Daniel Mallory. At Oxford, Mallory became a student-welfare officer. Mallory sometimes saw John Kelly, his former professor, for drinks or dinner. He recalled that Mallory once declined an invitation to a party, saying that he would be tied up in London, supporting a cancer-related organization. He claimed that he had two Ph. Toward the end of , he was hired as a mid-level editor at Sphere, a commercial imprint of Little, Brown. Mallory was amusing, well read, and ebullient, and could make a memorable first impression, over lunch, on literary agents and authors.
He tended to speak almost without pause. He wittily skewered acquaintances and seemed always conscious of his physical allure. He mentioned a friendship with Ricky Martin. This display was at times professionally effective.
Others found his behavior off-putting; it seemed unsuited to building long-term professional relationships. It was performative and calculating. Mallory, who had just turned thirty, told colleagues that he was impatient to rise. Having acquired a princeling status, he used it to denigrate colleagues. Mallory moved into an apartment in Shoreditch, in East London. In the summer of , Mallory told Little, Brown about a job offer from a London competitor. He was promised a raise and a promotion.
By then, Mallory had made it widely known to co-workers that he had an inoperable brain tumor. He seemed to be saying that cancer—already identified and unequivocally fatal—would allow him to live for almost another decade. Some co-workers wept after hearing the news. Mallory told people that he was seeking experimental treatments. He took time off. For a while, he wore a baseball cap, even indoors, which was thought to hide hair loss from chemotherapy.
Before the office closed for Christmas in , Mallory said that, as his parents had no interest in seeing him, he would instead make an exploratory visit to the facilities of Dignitas, the assisted-death nonprofit based in Switzerland. Mallory said that he had found his visit peaceful. The rival C. Mackenzie declined to comment. When challenged at Little, Brown, Mallory claimed that the rival C. In August, , Mallory left Little, Brown.

The terms of his departure are covered by a nondisclosure agreement. Mallory was not fired. This fact points to the strength of employee protections in the U. Or an oar. When Mallory left, many of his colleagues were unaware of any unpleasantness. There was even a small, awkward dinner in his honor.
Two weeks before Mallory left Little, Brown, it was announced that he had accepted a job in New York, as an executive editor at William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins. Publishing professionals estimate that his starting salary was at least two hundred thousand dollars a year. That fall, he moved into an apartment in a sixty-floor tower, with a pool, in midtown, and into an office at Morrow, on Fifty-third Street. Some book editors immerse themselves in text; others focus on making deals.
Mallory was firmly of the latter type, and specialized in acquiring established authors who had an international reach. At some point that winter, Mallory stopped coming into the office. This mystified colleagues, who were given no explanation. Writing from a Gmail address, Jake said that Dan would be going to the hospital the next day, for the removal of a tumor.
Please keep him in your thoughts. That e-mail appears to have been addressed exclusively to contacts in the U. He says that he is looking forward to being fitted with a spinal-fluid drain and that this will render him half-man, half-machine. Recipients wrote back in distress. After all, who would fabricate such a story? I sent books and sympathies. The next week, Dan wrote to Chris Parris-Lamb, the agent. Like Tom Ripley writing letters that were taken as the work of the murdered Dickie Greenleaf, Dan was apparently communicating with friends in a fictional voice.
Jake Mallory is thirty-five. In it, she and Jake, who got married that summer, look happy and hopeful.
Diana was formed out of clay of the shores of Themyscira by Hippolyta , who wished for a child; the clay figure was then brought to life by the Greek deities.
