First Year MFAer Lands Book Deal
March 10, 2023
Congratulations go out to first year MFAer, Joshua Galarza, whose YA novel, The Great Cool Ranch Dorito in the Sky, has been acquired by Henry Holt & Company. Unwilling to face the frightening reality of his mother's cancer, 15-year-old Brett Harrison escapes into the comic-book stories he pens while funneling his anxieties into an escalating eating disorder. When his disorder becomes public knowledge, Brett must find the strength to face even the most unfathomable loss bravely. The debut publication is set for spring 2024; David Dunton at Harvey Klinger negotiated the deal for world rights.
