Seven Figures, Ten Years

From Publishers Lunch:

Cultural historian and the author of the Beatles Chronicle Mark Lewisohn's THE BEATLES, a three-volume biography to be published over "the next decade or so," starting in 2008, [sold] to Tom Bromley at Time Warner UK, at auction, in a major deal for seven figures...

A seven-figure deal for books that won't come out for years... not bad. Does the world really need a Robert Caro-style multi-volume epic biography of The Beatles? I guess the market has spoken.
