“Mallory Ortberg, cofounder of the Toast, sold a currently untitled short story collection to Henry Holt. Allison Adler took world rights to the book, which marks Ortberg’s debut fiction collection. Ortberg helped launch the Toast, a literary and pop culture website geared to women, in 2013; this year she was named Slate’s “Dear Prudence” advice columnist. Kate McKean at Howard Morhaim Literary represented Ortberg and said the stories in the book feature ‘subversive twists on classic tales.'”
