Publishing Deals - Matt Gallaway, Donna Tartt

From today's Publishers Lunch, deal news including details of the new Donna Tartt (long wait though):
Oxford University Press editor Matt Gallaway's THE METROPOLIS CASE, the sweeping tale of unlikely quartet, bound together by the strange, spectacular history of Richard Wagner's masterpiece opera, Tristan and Isolde, to Suzanne O'Neill at Crown, by Bill Clegg at William Morris Agency (NA).
Author of The Secret History and The Little Friend Donna Tartt's new novel, a story of loss and obsession about a young man, guilt-stricken and damaged after the death of his mother, and the growing power that a stolen piece of art exercises over him, drawing him into an underworld of theft and corruption where nothing is as it seems, to Michael Pietsch at Little, Brown, for publication in 2012, by Amanda Urban at ICM (NA).
Matt Gallaway's blog is here.

Fabulous news about Tartt - though as you say a long long wait ... Sigh.

I loved her first and hated her second - so I'm hoping I'll love her third!

2012 is ridiculous ,She should think about her fans a bit .The length of time between books is getting quite annoying

Her first two books are brilliant. Donna Tartt is worth the wait!
