Chad Harbach, editor at n+1, has sold his first book to Little, Brown. The novel, called The Art of Fielding, will focus on how baseball interweaves through the lives of a select group of characters at a Wisconsin college, including a shortstop with issues, a college president, the president’s daughter, and possibly Michael Chabon. The book reportedly sold for six figures.

In related news, n+1 senior editor Elif Batuman‘s book, The Possessed, has recently been published. The New York Times calls Batuman’s effort an “odd and oddly profound little book,” “ostensibly about Russians.”
