garth-stein.jpgLooks like the auction for Garth Stein‘s new novel may have gone quite well indeed: Before checking out for the weekend, the Vulture bloggers intimated that HarperCollins is paying $1.2 million for what’s been described as the next Marley & Me (though they suggest “the true model for Stein’s novel seems to be mega-selling Mitch Albom“). What we hear from our sources is that Stein and Folio are still mulling over the offers that came in for The Art of Racing in the Rain, but that doesn’t necessarily rule out the HarperCollins angle. I guess we’ll find out for sure next week!
