Tom Wolfe ha dejado su editorial de toda la vida, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, donde publicaba desde 1965, y planea publicar su próxima novela (que trata sobre inmigrantes) Back to Blood en la editorial Little, Brown & Company. El precio del traslado: 7 millones de dólares.
Dice la nota: "Jonathan Galassi, publisher of Farrar, Straus, which has published 13 books with Mr. Wolfe, said he liked what he saw of the new novel, “Back to Blood,” which involves characters of Cuban, French, Russian and Haitian ancestry, all meeting in Miami. “We just couldn’t agree on terms,” Mr. Galassi said. A handful of publishers were allowed to see an excerpt from the new novel, and Little, Brown won the rights to publish it after an auction that ended just before Christmas. Mr. Wolfe, through a Little, Brown spokeswoman, declined a request for an interview. In a statement he did not address the subject of his shift in publishers, but said: “Two years ago when I got the idea of doing a book on immigration, people would say, ‘Oh, that’s fascinating,’ and then they would go to sleep standing up like a horse. Since then the subject has become a little more exciting, and in Miami it’s not only exciting, it’s red hot.”
