Timothy Schaffert’s "The Perfume Thief" was nabbed by Doubleday in a six-figure deal. Schaffert, director of the Creative Writing Program and Susan Rosowski professor of English, said the book would be published in 2021. "The Perfume Thief" is a WWII–set tale that follows a queer American expat who heads to Paris to become a perfumer. There, while crafting scents for members of the city’s underground nightlife, she hits a crossroads when the Nazis seize the city and seek her expertise for a sinister purpose.
