Agent Danielle Smith Accused of Fraud, Lupine Grove ClosesTrogdor the Burninator from Strongbad Email #58 “Dragon” Maria Semple – Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Amazon | B&N | IndieBoundChad Harbach – The Art of Fielding Amazon | B&N | IndieBound **NB: Jen used The Art Of Fielding as an example of a book whose success was inversely proportional to the size of the advance. A better example of this would be CITY ON FIRE by Garth Risk Hallberg, which sold for a larger advance and did less in sales, whereas Art Of Fielding actually has done very well relative to its advance.
