Writer Tatiana Boncompagni Hoover (Gilding Lily) says her sister Natasha swiped chapters of Tatiana's new novel Hedge Fund Wives from Ms. Hoover' s computer and registered them with the Copyright Office as co-author. Ms. Hoover didn't indicate a motive for the internecine interloping. She does admit that Natasha ""nevertheless occasionally provided ideas relating to 'Hedge Fund Wives."" She has now sued Ms. Boncompagni for an injunction, damages, and a ruling that she, not Natasha, is the author of Hedge Fund Wives. Read a teaser about the book here.
