New Book by Michael Lewis to Pub This Spring


Michael Lewis, whose major bestsellers include The Big Short, The Blind Side, and Moneyball, returns to the financial world with a new book to be released by W. W. Norton & Company this spring. Titled Flash Boys, the book gives readers a ringside seat as the biggest new story in years prepares to hit Wall Street. Starling Lawrence, whose editing relationship with Lewis began with the author's first book, the #1 bestseller Liar's Poker, notes, "Michael is brilliant at finding the perfect narrative line for any subject. That's what makes his books, no matter the topic, so indelibly memorable."

As Michiko Kakutani said of Lewis's most recent #1 bestseller, The Big Short, "No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis." Malcolm Gladwell observes, "I read Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I'll never play like that. But it's good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like."

Flash Boys is slated to go on sale Monday, March 31, 2014, and will be available for pre-order starting January 15, 2014.
