Chris Cillizza, editor of The Fix,
to write book in time for 2012 presidential election
World and eBook rights were sold to Sean Desmond at Crown Archetype for Broadway Paperbacks by Gail Ross.
Cillizza, also a contributor for MSNBC, will write “The Gospel According to The Fix: Everything You Need to Know about Politics.” It will be published next July and will include humorous political stories, tidbits from the beltway, fun things you haven’t heard about your local politicians and more. “The Gospel According to The Fix” will show everyone from political junkies to casual observers how things really work in the wonderfully odd game of politics and political coverage. It will also examine politicians’ timeless foibles in the traditionally amusing, insightful way Cillizza writes on the blog.
The book will give readers a front row seat and will be the must-have guide for the 2012 campaign. “We are delighted that the analysis and insights that Post audiences have come to expect and love from Chris in print and online will now find a new platform in a book,” said Raju Narisetti, managing editor of The Washington Post.
