Hyperion will publish a memoir that tells the other side of the story behind the memoir, “Eat, Pray, Love“—a literary response scheduled for a fall 2010 release.
According to Publishers Weekly, Michael Cooper sold “Displaced” to Hyperion’s Brenda Copeland. The book’s auction was handled by William Morris Endeavor agent, Rebecca Oliver. Cooper’s ex-wife, Elizabeth Gilbert, wrote “Eat, Pray, Love” about how she recovered from their divorce.
Here’s more from the post: “Cooper offers the flip side of her tale—his account of overcoming the divorce and embarking on his own world journey. According to Hyperion, he goes on a ‘search for purpose’ that leads him through the Middle East and other developing countries.”
