Michael Chabon, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, has been purchased by Del Rey. Well, his new novel, not the author, of course.
Editor-in-Chief Betsy Mitchell has acquired Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road for publication in November 2007.
Gentlemen of the Road is the story of a pair of wandering adventurers-swords for hire, horsethieves, flimflam artists, unlikely soul mates-who get caught up in the schemes and battles that follow a bloody coup in the great medieval Jewish empire of the Khazars.
Hired as escorts for a fugitive prince, they soon find themselves the half-willing generals of a mad rebellion as they attempt to restore the prince's family to the throne. The book will be illustrated by artist Gary Gianni.
