Robert Thomson, chief executive of Harper Collins parent company News Corp., revealed this news to The Guardian. He would not reveal sales figures but did say that the book won’t have a ton of marketing. Here is an excerpt:
Thomson said: “I’m not going to make a sales forecast, it’s inappropriate, but it’s going to be a big book. It won’t need a huge amount of marketing, it will have a certain amount of marketing. Most people in America have read To Kill a Mockingbird.
