The Atlantic Kicks Off Ebook Effort With Jonathan Rauch Memoir

The Atlantic is debuting its ebook initiative on Wednesday with “Denial” by Jonathan Rauch, a memoir of following the author’s unexpected trek to discovering at 25 that he is gay.

The Atlantic Books, the new imprint, will publish several long-form stories this year, the magazine said in a press release. Details of the next publication will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Over the two decades that Jonathan has been writing for The Atlantic, he’s produced revelatory articles on everything from politics to foreign policy to, in our current issue, end-of-life care.  But this book is his most powerful work,” James Bennet, editor in chief of The Atlantic, said in a statement. “We are honored to make it the debut title of The Atlantic Books.”

Rauch, a contributing editor at the magazine, chronicles his quarter-century of denial, living in an inverted world “where love is hate, attraction is envy, and childhood never ends. He comes to think of himself as a kind of monster—until one day, seemingly miraculously, the world turns itself upright and the possibility of love floods in.”

“Denial: My Twenty-Five Years Without a Soul” is available now exclusively onKindle Singles and soon via Nook, iBooks, and Kobo for $1.99. For more information, please visit www.theatlantic.com/denial.

The Atlantic:October Issue

The Atlantic celebrates October with a Values issue, complete with Bill Clinton on the cover. Inside, Jonathan Rauch finds out how Clinton is reinventing charity–and himself. Rauch writes:

To Clinton, profit is necessary and entirely legitimate, a point he makes to anyone who will listen. “I think it’s wrong to ask anyone to lose money.”

Explains a lot, doesn’t it?
