From this week's Publisher's Lunch deal roundup:

Spin editor and New York Times Book Review columnist Dave Itzkoff's COCAINE'S KID, about growing up the son of an addicted father, based on his recent New York magazine article, to Bruce Tracy at Villard, for publication in spring 2008, by Nina Collins of Collins Literary Agency (world).

So, to recap: Itzkoff's first book, Lads, dealt prominently with his cokehead dad; his 5,700-word New York feature dealt entirely with his cokehead dad; and his second book will deal entirely with it, too.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: We're so glad we'll never have to go to Seder at the Itzkoff house.
