What's the deal?

Publisher's Lunch says: 26-year-old Iowa Writers Workshop grad Benjamin Hale's THE EVOLUTION OF BRUNO LITTLEMORE, the fictional memoir of the world's first chimpanzee to attain the power of speech, whose big, brash, bestial narrative shows us what it is to be human -- to love, to learn, to hope, to reach, and to fail, to Cary Goldstein at Twelve, at auction, for publication in winter 2011, by Brian DeFiore at DeFiore and Company (NA).

Indichik says: There were no less than two Iowa MFA grads with deals in the newsletter this week, and much as I would like to heap derision on that fact, I don't really have the heart to rip on a guy who has had to deal with every acquaintance he's encountered for the last few years greeting him with: "So, still working on that monkey book?"
