BookCourt Bookseller Lands Debut Novel Deal

BookCourt bookseller and blogger Adam Wilson has sold his debut novel to Harper Perennial. Flatscreen is “a coming-of-age story about a young man trying to become a new person in a world where nothing is new,” and publication is set for 2012.

Wilson serves as pop culture blogger for Black Book and deputy editor of The Faster Times. Erin Hosier of the Dunow, Carlson and Lerner literary agency negotiated the deal for world English rights with editor Michael Signorelli.

Signorelli had this statement in the release: “We became aware of Adam through his blogging and his stellar bookselling at Book Court. Acquiring Adam’s novel is like a last-minute present to myself. This and last week have been so quiet, hardly anyone’s around to tell me ‘no.’”
