Scott Turow Jumps to Grand Central

index.jpgBestselling novelist Scott Turow will publish the hardcover sequel to “Presumed Innocent” with Grand Central Publishing rather with than his original hardcover publisher, Farrar Straus & Giroux.

The sequel to the 20-year-old novel about a young attorney accused of murder will be published in 2010. According to the NY Times, Turow’s old editor Jonathan Galassi said the split was amicable. The new novel catches up with the hero of “Presumed Innocent” as a older judge struggling to uncover who murdered his wife.

Here’s more from the article: “Mr. Turow said in an interview that it no longer made sense to have one house publishing his books in hardcover and another releasing them in paperback. Such arrangements were common when he first sold the rights to “Presumed Innocent” in 1986 but are much rarer now, especially for a bestselling author. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.”
