Radar sent us a note yesterday afternoon to let us know that they’d picked up the first serial rights to Mergers & Acquisitions, the debut from Dana Vachon (left), which they describe as “a thinly-disguised novel about hijinks in the investment banking world.” We’re further told that the magazine beat out New York and The New Yorker for the excerpt, which threw me for a momentary loop: Can you remember the last time New York ran fiction? (And none of your snide jokes, now!) Anyway, the Vachon-filled Radar goes on sale in two weeks.
