Emily Witt, who primarily reported on book publishing for The New York Observer is leaving the paper to do what most journalists want to do, write a book.

She confirmed with Capital New York that the book, acquired by Faber & Faber will be a “thoroughly reported cultural history of female sexuality in America.”

Very different from writing about Barnes & Noble, celebrity publishing deals, and classic lit, but interesting all the same.
