News round-up for the week ending August 25, 2013:

What the mind-fuck?! As many as five new J.D. Salinger are books coming out in 2015! (via The Atlantic)

Aziz Ansari is writing a book about relationships—or, about not having one—that is coming out via Penguin Press: it’s about a “new era for singles, in which the basic issues facing a single person- whom we meet, how we meet them, and what happens next – have been radically altered by new technologies.” It’s a $3.5 M deal, holy shit. (via The Wrap)

Book adaptations abound! Two books we have Bookmarked here at STET have gotten studio deals: Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians will be made into a film and Eddie Huang’s memoir Fresh Off the Boat is getting an ABC pilot commitment. (via Deadline)
