Fowler Tackles Nouveau Riche at SMP

Publishers Weekly reports:

Fowler Tackles Nouveau Riche at SMP
The author of the bestseller Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald(2013), Therese Anne Fowler sold a currently untitled novel about the Vanderbilts to Hope Dellon at St. Martin’s Press. The Macmillan division is Fowler’s current publisher, and St. Martin’s said the novel will take readers from “the extravagant world of the newly rich robber barons from the Gilded Age to the Jazz Age.” Reimagining the lives of three women in the famous moneyed American family—Alva, Gertrude, and Gloria Morgan—the book will follow each woman as she ascends the social ladder in her respective enclave of Manhattan; Newport, R.I.; and Paris. Wendy Sherman handled the U.S. sale for Fowler, and the book has also been acquired, in separate deals, in the U.K. (by Two Roads) and in the Netherlands (by Luitingh Sijthoff).

Z is currently in development with Amazon Studios and Killer Films, for a TV series starring Christina Ricci. Filming is set to begin next month.
