John Green, Author of The Fault in our Stars, to Publish New Novel this Autumn

23rd June 2017

John Green, the internationally acclaimed author of the YA novel, The Fault in our Stars, is to publish a new novel this October 10th called Turtles All the Way Down.

 

It tells the story of sixteen-year-old Aza Holmes, looking for clues in the disappearance of a fugitive billionaire, while grappling with mental illness. It deals with themes of lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction and tuatara.

 

“I've been working on Turtles All the Way Down for years, and I’m so excited to share it with readers this October,” says John. “This is my first attempt to write directly about the kind of mental illness that has affected my life since childhood, so while the story is fictional, it is also quite personal."

 

Francesca Dow, Managing Director of Penguin Random House Children’s UK, said, "A new book from John Green is cause for true celebration. John is the most powerful of storytellers and this is a proud and incredibly exciting moment for our whole company as we announce this news today.” 

 

Julie Strauss-Gabel, President and Publisher of Dutton Books for Young Readers, Green's publisher in the US, adds, “As with all of John’s work, Turtles All the Way Down is both a singularly personal read and a catalyst for conversation and community. It is with tremendous pride and great excitement that his longtime Penguin family can finally shout this news to the world.”

 

The publication of Turtles All the Way Down comes nearly six years after the release of the instant #1 bestseller The Fault in Our Stars, which went on to sell more than 23 million copies worldwide. Named TIME Magazine’s #1 Fiction Book of 2012, the novel was included in ‘best of’ lists from, amongst others, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post. The film adaptation of The Fault in our Stars was released in June 2014 and of Paper Towns in 2015..

 

John's many accolades many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor and the Edgar Award. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers, one of the most popular online video projects in the world. He lives with his wife and children in Indianapolis, Indiana.
