Latest Book Deals, Courtesy of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (25 October 2010)

Latest deal announcements from Publishers Weekly :

Fiction Debut

  • Anna Funder’s All That I Am, “about German refugees from Hitler’s Germany, living in London during the mid-1930s,” and the nonfiction Stasiland:  Stories From Behind the Berlin Wall, “investigative journalism that offers an account of life in Communist East Germany under a regime of terror and persecution maintained by the infamous secret police,” to Harper for publication in Spring 2012

General/Other

  • Krystn Lee’s Drifting House, “a collection which alternates between the lives of Koreans struggling through a turbulent, post-World War II history in their homeland and the communities of Korean immigrants grappling with assimilation in the United States,” along with her novel, How I Became a North Korean, “narrated by a precocious young boy who leaves home in the US to live among North Korean refugees in China,” to Viking
  • Kalyan Ray’s multi-generational novel, No Country, “that winds its way through 19th and 20th century Ireland, America and India, touching on the Irish famine, Ireland and India’s parallel quests for independence, and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire; exploring themes of diaspora, the making and unmaking of emigrant lives, and …  the few intimate degrees of separation that lie between love and murder,” to Simon & Schuster

Business/Investing

  • “Entrepreneur, columnist, and speaker” John Warrillow’s Built to Sell, “showing how business owners can create a business with intrinsic value, a business that is saleable without them,” to Portfolio, for publication in May 2011

There were other fascinating deal announcements, such as Enemy in the Wire, Senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper’s “investigative and inspiring story of US forces’ deadliest battle to date in Afghanistan, in which 54 US soldiers fended off 300 to 400 Taliban fighters,” but, alas, self’s neck is bothering her exceedingly this evening, and self needs to get up and stretch.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
