Simon Rich's New Novella Is Being Serialized in 'The New Yorker' Starting Today

Former SNL writer Simon Rich's new novella Sell Out is being serialized this week in The New Yorker. You can check out Part 1 of 4 now. The next three parts will be released tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday. It follows a fictionalized version of Simon Rich meeting his immigrant great-great-grandfather who was preserved in brine for 100 years after a factory accident, only to find himself baffled by his descendant Simon's carefree lifestyle as a screenwriter. Rich's collection of short stories The Last Girlfriend on Earth just came out last week, so between that and this novella, 2013 has already been a incredibly productive year for him as an author.
