Michael Lewis Inks Deal for Next Book

Author and Vanity Fair contributor Michael Lewis’ next book will be called Boomerang and will focus on “the effects of the US financial crisis on large and small European countries and how their difficulties impact in turn on the US,” according to Publisher’s Marketplace.

The book will be published by his usual house, WW Norton, and will be edited by Starling Lawrence, whom Mr. Lewis thanked for editing “all but one of my books” in the acknowledgements section of his last book, The Big Short.

Norton has been somewhat tightlipped with details beyond that, but for a preview of what the book will be like, check out Mr. Lewis’ latest piece in Vanity Fair about Greece in the wake of its economic collapse.
