TRUE NORTH to be published by Knopf

Gonker1From the terrific news category — my book, TRUE NORTH, will be published by Knopf in the somewhat near (probably 2016) future.

TRUE NORTH tells the true story of the search for a lost, sick dog — on the Appalachian Trail — in 1998. The narrative follows one family as it tries desperately to find its dog, Gonker, before he dies of Addison’s Disease. And yes — the family is my own family, by extension. My wife’s family.

Tim O’Connell — the terrific editor of Paolo Bacigalupi, B. Catling, Tao Lin, Jaimy Gordon, and others — will be guiding the project forward. My incredible agent, Bill Clegg, made the sale.
