"Winners Take All": Author's Cut

A literary NFT drop -- secret manuscript outtakes, never-used cover art, and catchphrases -- from the writer Anand Giridharadas.

This is an experiment in applying NFTs to the literary world. Here is a collection of for-your-eyes-only deleted passages from the New York Times bestseller "Winners Take All" -- plus a cover art concept designed by the author but rejected, the original "Plutes gonna plute" template, the coined word "MarketWorld," and a March of Progress of the evolving title pages.

Many deleted passages were excised because they made the book less hearable. Now hear them on their own.

Can elements of a book that didn't belong in the book nonetheless live in the world, but in quiet? Can unused fragments of a work be witnessed without being published?

Proceeds from this experiment will fund future reporting projects, as well as original works by emerging writers to be published in The Ink newsletter and the collection of literary artifacts from other writers.
