Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, to publish new novel
Two new novels for Corsair
Corsair, a division of Little, Brown Book Group, has acquired two new novels by Jennifer Egan.
Corsair Publisher James Gurbutt, who published Jennifer Egan’s A Visit From the Goon Squad, acquired UK & Commonwealth rights in the two books from Felicity Blunt at Curtis Brown.
The announcement marks one of Corsair’s first acquisitions since Constable and Robinson joined Little, Brown Book Group.
James Gurbutt said: ‘I am delighted to be working with Jennifer Egan again. Her new novel, as yet unfinished, is as dazzling as I’ve seen. Jennifer is one of the finest writers of her generation, a joy to publish; it doesn’t get much better than that.’
Jennifer Egan said: ‘I’m thrilled to be reunited not only with James Gurbutt and Corsair, who have done a splendid job publishing Goon Squad and my backlist in the UK, but also with Little, Brown, who I loved working with on The Keep. I couldn’t ask for more.’
Little, Brown published The Keep in 2007. Egan’s backlist is now all reunited at Corsair.
Jennifer Egan is the author of The Invisible Circus, which was released as a feature film by Fine Line in 2001, Emerald City and Other Stories, Look at Me, which was nominated for the National Book Award in 2001, and the bestselling The Keep. Her novel, A Visit From the Goon Squad, an international bestseller, won the 2011 Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, and the LA Times Book Prize. Also a journalist, she writes frequently in the New York Times Magazine.
