Grove Atlantic Acquires Book of Mormon Producer’s Self-Published Book

UnknownGrove Atlantic has acquired Kevin Morris’ collection of stories White Man’s Problems, along with a novel that Morris is currently working on.

The Book of Mormon co-producer self-published White Man’s Problems on Amazon earlier this year. The book includes nine short stories, each one about a different man ”whose outward success masks inner turmoil that complicates their lives and often baffles those around them.”

Morgan Entrekin, publisher and CEO of Grove Atlantic, met Morris at a book party for Morris’ debut title thrown by mutual friends in New York City earlier this summer. Entrekin took a copy of the book and was impressed with what he read, so he took Morris to lunch which led to a two-book deal. ”I think this is the first time we have acquired a self-published book,” stated Entrekin.
