It is with tremendous happiness—and a sense of terrific good fortune— that I share the news that I will again be working with Philomel on two new books, a deal that was announced earlier today in both Publishers Weekly and Publishers Lunch. My experience throughout the editing and pre-launch of Small Damages (due out July 19, 2012) has been unparalleled. My respect for Tamra Tuller (my editor), Michael Green (Philomel president), and indeed the entire Philomel team—and author list—cannot be quantified. My appreciation for their kindness and care, their intelligence and wisdom, and their faith in me is unspeakable.
It is a remarkable thing to be believed in by people this smart and this good.
Here is the deal as Publishers Lunch noted it earlier today. My thanks to my agent Amy Rennert for helping to make this happen, and for being there through all the years.
National Book Award finalist and author of more than a dozen books including the new YOU ARE MY ONLY and the forthcoming SMALL DAMAGES, Beth Kephart's two untitled novels, the first of which introduces a teenage graffiti artist living in Berlin in the early 1980s on the eve of a daring escape, to Tamra Tuller at Philomel, by Amy Rennert at the Amy Rennert Agency (World).
