The NY Observer points out that HarperCollins’ Ecco Press editor Daniel Halpern first acquired the book in 2006, but now the Amazon page lists McSweeney’s as the publisher. All the parties involved with the book kept mum about why the title changed publishers.
Here’s some paperback intelligence from the article: “Moreover, the paperback edition, originally slated to be published through Ecco’s paperback line, will, like all the paperback editions of Mr. Eggers’ previous books, come out through Random House’s Vintage Books imprint. According to Sloane Crosley, Mr. Eggers’ publicist there, Vintage has been in talks to publish the book since this spring.”
