Journalist Jonathan Franklin has sold 33 Men to Penguin’s Putnam & Sons imprint. The manuscript chronicles the rescue of 33 miners after the Chilean mining disaster earlier this year.
The video embedded above shows a BBC news report about the rescue. Franklin carried a “Rescue Team” pass which allowed him to close access to the rescue effort. The book will contain material from 75 interviews Franklin conducted, including victims.
Editorial director Marysue Rucci acquired the book and Inkwell Management literary agent George Lucas negotiated the deal. The deal included North American hardcover and paperback rights, as well as eBook and audiobook rights.
