A New Reason to Hide Playboy

Denis Johnson’s new noir novel, Nobody Move, is being serialized in Playboy. New York magazine’s blog claims this finally gives them a reason to buy the magazine.

The July issue, with the first of four installments, came out on Friday. No news yet on whether the National Book Award winner (Tree of Smoke) has increased the mag’s newsstand sales. The only review to date is from the LA Times‘s David Ulin. The verdict on installment one? Mixed, but he’s ready to sign on for the whole series.

Come September ’09, Nobody Move will be released between hardcovers by FSG.
