@GSelevator may get book deal after all

Elevator panel

The @GSElevator book isn’t dead yet.

The New York Post reports that less than a day after Simon & Schuster said it would not publish the book based on widely followed tweets from @GSElevator, other publishers are expressing interest in the project, the agent for the would-be author of the book told The Post.

John LeFevre — who landed a six-figure book deal from S&S’s Touchstone imprint to write the book that sarcastically poked fun at the image of wealthy Wall Street investment bankers — is expected to visit New York next week and could be meeting with publishers at that time.

'We’ve had interest from other publishers', said Byrd Leavell at Waxman Leavell, the agent for LeFevre.

The book ‘Straight to Hell’ is still coming…', LeFevre tweeted on his @GSElevator account late Thursday, hours after S&S canceled the deal.
