n+1’s Marco Roth Sells a Memoir to FSG

n+1 co-founder and editor Marco Roth has sold a memoir at auction to FSG, Publishers Marketplace announced today. Titled Misimpressions, the book deals with Roth’s father’s death–but also, this being an n+1 memoir, “the truths and limitations of literature.” Agent Elyse Cheney, who represents Benjamin Kunkel as well, brokered the sale.

The book will be the latest addition to a growing library of work by n+1 editors: Kunkel’s Indecision came out in 2005, Keith Gessen’s All the Sad Young Literary Men came out in 2008, and Chad Harbach sold his novel The Art of Fielding to Little, Brown earlier this year.
