Sad and literary debut for Heinemann

<p>Jason Arthur at Wm Heinemann has bought a novel by Keith Gessen, founder of the US literary magazine n+1.

Arthur described Gessen's All the Sad Young Literary Men, about graduates struggling to cope with the adult world, as "one of the most exciting books I've read in a very long time . . . An intelligent debut in the tradition of Saul Bellow and Philip Roth."

Wm Heinemann has UK and Commonwealth rights through Sarah Chalfant at Andrew Wylie, and will publish in February 2007.</p>
