I'd like to announce that I've signed a contract with Gallery Books (A Division of Simon & Schuster) to write my medical school memoir, In Stitches. From Publisher's Weekly:
Kara Cesare at Gallery Books took world rights, at auction, to Dr. Anthony Youn's memoir, In Stitches. Youn, currently a world-renowned plastic surgeon, is writing with Alan Eisenstock and recounts his experiences growing up the sole Korean-American in a small Michigan town. Agent Wendy Sherman brokered the deal, and Gallery is planning a summer 2011 publication.I'm really excited about my book coming out, as it's been over five years in the making. Thanks to Kara Cesare, Wendy Sherman, and Alan Eisenstock for making this dream come true. It's a funny, yet touching coming-of-age story of how a young Asian-American kid with big glasses and a huge jaw became a nationally-recognized plastic surgeon. (There's much more to the story, but this is all I can reveal right now)
You'll all be hearing more about this over the coming months!
Thanks for reading.
