What's the deal? Same as it was last time, apparently

It seems that while I was off making a living, and then recovering from the trauma of making a living, the world has continued to spin without me.


But happily, I'm back to bring you the latest installment of What's the Deal?, your very own weekly Publisher's Lunch newsletter deal snark.

Here's the latest developments in the exciting and ever-changing world of publishing:

Publisher's Lunch says: Sarah Gray's WUTHERING BITES, a retelling of Wuthering Heights in which Heathcliff is a vampire, to John Scognamiglio at Kensington, in a very nice deal, for publication in September 2010, by Evan Marshall at Evan Marshall Agency (World).

Publisher's Lunch says: Literary critic Bill Deresiewicz's EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LIFE I LEARNED BY READING JANE AUSTEN: One Man, Six Books and the Secrets of Life and Love, an exploration of what Jane Austen's books can teach us all about growing up, the importance of the little things, the blinding glitz of wealth and class, being a good person, finding true friends, and falling in love, to Ann Godoff at Penguin Press, by Elyse Cheney of Elyse Cheney Agency (NA).

Indichik says: So...vampires and Jane Austen. Never mind.
