Bestselling author Michael Lewis will release a new book this March that centers on Wall Street.

Lewis is best known for his books “Moneyball,” “The Blind Side,” and “Boomerang,” among others.

“Michael is brilliant at finding the perfect narrative line for any subject,” Lewis’s editor Starling Lawrence said in a statement. “That’s what makes his books, no matter the topic, so indelibly memorable.”

The new work will be titled “Flash Boys” and will be published by W.W. Norton & Company.

“The book gives readers a ringside seat as the biggest new story in years prepares to hit Wall Street,” W.W. Norton & Company said in a statement.

“Flash” will hit shelves on March 31.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
