New York-based independent publisher Three Rooms Press is delighted to announce a nice deal for the acquisition of North American rights for Celestial Mechanics, the debut novel by famed Blue Highways author William Least Heat-Moon.
The book was acquired by co-directors Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges and brokered by David Black Literary Agency. Publication is planned for March 2017.
William Least Heat-Moon’s critically acclaimed bestseller Blue Highways took him across 13,000 miles of country roads, avoiding cities and fast food chains, in search of something greater than himself. That book, which spent 42 weeks on The New York Times Bestseller list, tapped into a collective need and has become a genre-defining classic.
Following another seven works of nonfiction, Heat-Moon’s debut novel Celestial Mechanics takes readers on an even more powerful journey, one that is not just about finding your place in America but about what it means to exist in a universe we struggle to fathom. In essence, it is a Blue Highways of the mind.
“Blue Highways was a major influence on our lives, and Celestial Mechanics shares a lot of the same qualities,” says Georges. Adds Carlaftes, “It is a real honor to be able to work with William Least Heat-Moon and publish this incredible novel.”
