Adam Sternbergh, the culture editor at The New York Times Magazine, has sold his first novel. The 6th Floor, the official New York Times Magazine blog, reports that the book — titled Shovel Ready — was bought by Crown Publishing.

Shovel Ready is about a garbageman who turns into a hitman. Sounds interesting.

Sternbergh has been culture editor of the Times Magazine since late 2010. Prior to that he was an editor-at-large for New York.
