Baghdad blogger Salam Pax has signed a book deal with Grove/Atlantic, for a memoir due in stores next fall. "No word yet on the advance," writes Nick Denton, who has seen the press release, "but, given the competition for Salam's book, it must be well into the six figures. Which would make Salam one of the richest men in Iraq—if one excludes the local warlords and mullahs, that is."
