Granta Books has signed two books from New Yorker writer Wendell Steavenson.

The two books are Three Days in Paris, an on-the-ground account of the Charlie Hebdo attack and a portrait of the city in turmoil, and Circling the Square, a chronicle, involving memoir and reportage, of Cairo during the Egyptian revolution.

Steavenson is the the author of The Weight of a Mustard Seed (Atlantic), about Iraq under Saddam Hussein.
