Sharp Acquires Leisure Seekers

Sharp Independent at HarperCollins (“Boys Don’t Cry,” “You Can Count on Me”) has acquired rights to Michael Zadoorian’s upcoming dramedy novel “The Leisure Seekers” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story revolves around an elderly couple who, to the chagrin of their children, head off on an impromptu RV trip down Route 66, determined to enter their twilight years on their own terms.

The book is scheduled to be released in spring 2009. Zadoorian wrote “Second Hand,” a well-received debut novel featuring a slacker male protagonist set amid kitschy thrift stores.
