Charlie Kaufman Is Writing a Novel

Not content to warp brains solely through the medium of film, Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich) has signed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing. The novel's plot is completely unknown so far, but that may remain the case once you've read the whole thing twice anyway. It's not clear how the writing will shake out alongside Kaufman's sophomore directorial effort, Frank or Francis, which has been gaining steam. But, again, it is unclear what Charlie Kaufman's all about. In a cool way!
