Yesterday Publishers Marketplace reported the sale of Zoe Heller’s (What Was She Thinking?) forthcoming novel, The Believers, “about the life of a radical lawyer and his family.” So far, so excellent, especially if the book deals, as Heller said it or another novel would, with orthodox religion.
But there’s a catch. It’s slated for publication in winter 2008.
Oh, Ms. Heller, how you tease.
