B.J. Novak Lands Seven-Figure, Two-Book Deal
Knopf has purchased two books by B.J. Novak, who played Ryan Howard on The Office, for an unspecified seven-figure amount, The New York Times reports.
One of the books, which Novak has apparently already written, is fiction and will be released in 2014.
“The closest analogy for me is Woody Allen,” Novak’s literary agent Richard Abate told the Times of Novak’s stories. “Underneath these stories is a real intellectual curiosity. I think their appeal is that they’re incredibly accessible and comic, but at the same time they’re exploring the modern condition.”
Novak, 33, was a writer, co-executive producer and cast member of The Office.
