City on Fire, the debut novel by Writing faculty member Garth Risk Hallberg, has been acquired by Knopf for nearly $2 million. Producer Scott Rudin bought the film rights to the book last month. The novel, which The New York Times says "took the publishing industry by storm," is set in New York City in the 1970s.
