Stephanie Clifford Inks Deal With St. Martin’s Press

stmartins130Journalist Stephanie Clifford has landed a deal for her debut novel, Everybody Rise. St. Martin’s Press will release the book in 2016.

Executive editor Charles Spicer negotiated the terms of the agreement with literary agent Elisabeth Weed. The film rights for this title have been sold to Fox 2000 Pictures.

Here’s more from the press release: “Set in 2006 Manhattan of the young and privileged, a new generation of heirs and strivers are jockeying for social power and discovering that class, especially on the Upper East Side, still holds sway.  Into this world arrives an irresistibly flawed heroine who hides her insecurity behind sharp intelligence and biting wit.  In order to be accepted by this rarefied set, she must be seen as someone with established old money. Her lies start small, but quickly grow.  As she relentlessly elbows her way up the social ladder, the ground underneath her begins to give way.”
