Richard Rushfield Gets a Book Deal

rushAI.jpgRichard Rushfield, writer, former Gawker editor, former LAT blogger just sold his third book officially today. Its to be published by Hyperion. This tome will cover American Idol and should be out in time for the debut of the 10th season of the talent show. Rushfield tells us it’s working title is “American Idol: The Last Empire.”

“The history and the world of American Idol,” Rushfield tells FBLA. “How it created an empire, a phenomenon and how its maintained it…and the whole universe that swirls around the show.”

That’s quite a scope: everything Idol. This book is going to be huge and odds are, the book release party still won’t have an open bar.

Let’s take out bets. Should we do a poll?
