It’s official—Brooklyn-based author Jennifer Egan is having the Best Week Ever.
First, her rock-and-roll novel A Visit From The Goon Squad won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Now, it’s being reported that HBO has optioned the novel for a television series. There’s no script yet, and thus there’s no idea how the novel’s sprawling, loosely-connected tales will be translated to the small screen. Egan will serve as series consultant.
Deadline says the deal was in the works before Egan won the Pulitzer, but the deal was just sealed.
Looks like I need to get on it before the cameras start rolling.
