Despite the fact that Michael Hastings‘ The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan is still listed on Amazon, one report suggests that Little, Brown has dropped its book deal with the Rolling Stone reporter.
The New York Post reports: “Sources said that super agent Andrew Wylie had quietly begun offering the manuscript to other publishers this week.”
The book is to be based on Hastings’ article “The Runaway General,” an essay exposing high-level insubordination in the military. The article helped get Gen. Stanley McChrystal — the official running the war in Afghanistan at the time — fired.
