Author, author

Imagine a young person with tremendous writing talent, determined to write a novel that sums up our times with piercing insight, mordant humor, and vivid characters. Imagine that they’ve serialized a few chapters on the web, and people have loved every work, begged for more. Imagine that this person sent in the novel to a publishing house, only to get it rejected because it didn’t come from a literary agent. Now imagine that author staring blankly at the computer screen, trying to will the words to come, wondering why anyone bothers anymore.
If you were either excited or dismayed at the news that Justin Bieber is publishing a memoir, just wait and see how you feel when you digest the news that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of MTV’s Jersey Shore will publish a novel in January 2011 with Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Press imprint.


The novel, tentatively titled A Shore Thing–ugh?  double-ugh? double-ugh full on, all the way?– will trace the plight of “a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore),” according to a press release.

It will also come with a big yellow arrow on the spine to show you how to read it. Hold the book so the pointy-part goes up!
